SIBUR launches new grant scheme for schoolchildren and teachers

Moscow, 10 December 2012. SIBUR has launched a new grant scheme for schoolchildren and teachers.

The scheme is designed to encourage school students to study subjects relevant for the company, such as chemistry, physics or mathematics, and subsequently have them join SIBUR’s enterprises. It also aims to reward teachers for effective, in-depth teaching.

The pilot project will cover six pre-selected regions: Khanty-Mansi and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Areas, Voronezh, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, and Tyumen Regions.

SIBUR’s grants will be awarded to school students winning city-wide academic competitions or taking medal places in regional or autonomous area finals. An additional criterion will be students’ active role in school or city life, in particular, their successes in sports or creativity contests.

Students’ medal places will also be the prime criterion to award a grant to a teacher. Those teachers who throughout the academic year have organised at least two events to promote advanced study of subjects relevant for SIBUR among schoolchildren will have an additional advantage.

Grantees will be selected by the judging panel made up of representatives of SIBUR and city departments for education.

The grant for schoolchildren is 3,000 roubles, for teachers, 30,000 roubles. The grantee students may be offered to continue their studies in advanced chemistry classes at SIBUR-sponsored schools, and school graduates, at SIBUR partner universities.

The SIBUR grant scheme is planned to be annual, with winners awarded at the end of the academic year.

General information:

SIBUR strives to support vocational and higher education in chemistry, trying to make petrochemistry popular as well.

Within its education support programme, the company sponsors schools and assists in organisation and development of career-oriented chemical engineering school classes. SIBUR’s enterprises act as partners in school chemistry forums and competitions, and offer guided tours to production sites.

The company also has support programmes for students of vocational and higher schools. With the aid of SIBUR’s enterprises, learning institutions set up chemistry laboratories and grant personalised scholarships.

A number of SIBUR’s enterprises have the Enterprise – Regional Specialised University programme in place. The programme is meant to promote chemical production jobs, career guidance, and employment of graduates. The enterprises partner with universities to provide upgrading of skills and occupational re-training to staff, and field experience to students.
