Meridian Gaming CY awarded scholarships to Andreas Georgiou and George Avraam, two students of the Faculty of Business Administration of University of Nicosia (UNIC).
In a ceremony held at UNIC on November 17, International Students’ Day, Meridian Gaming CY, represented by Marketing Manager Zac Georgiou, underlined the crucial role of education in an individual’s personal and professional development.
As highlighted at the ceremony, the collaboration between the two organisations to award scholarships is not only a milestone for the two UNIC students, who will directly benefit from this generous initiative, but also aspires to have an impact on the wider academic community and society.
According to Georgiou, Meridian Gaming CY will continue to support and help young children with the Meridian Scholarship.
“We are doing everything we can to help make young people’s dreams come true,” he noted. “We support equal opportunities in life and in the workplace, without discrimination and prejudice. Meridian is fighting for a better future for all and stands for the belief that we are all equal.”
Addressing the students to whom the scholarships were awarded, Georgiou pointed out that even a small change can have a big impact. “With our policy, we want to give a boost to these two young graduates. We all want to bring out the best in ourselves and become the best we can be.”
In turn, UNIC Dean of the School of Business Administration Professor Angelika Kokkinaki, commented that: “education is an avenue for new opportunities, a means to explore perspectives and a tool for social contribution”.
She continued: “the impact of a scholarship goes beyond the direct financial relief it provides: it serves as an affirmation of a student’s potential, but also of the entire academic community and, by extension, our University.”
Dean Kokkinaki concluded by urging students to dream big. “Through your studies at the University of Nicosia, I am sure you have realised that being a student at the School of Business is not only about personal progress, but also about the impact one can have on our world,” she said.
