Celebrating its 10-year anniversary in Latvia in 2018, “OP Group” in collaboration with Vītolu Fund, established an anniversary scholarship and invited their clients to support the most talented young people in Latvia by donating with the remark “Donation for the anniversary scholarship”. Continuing the successfully established tradition, at the end of 2020 the number of OP scholarships was increased to six.
Thanks to the OP donation, four of the most capable exact science students were able to start and continue their studies in Riga, away from home, all in their preferred study programmes.
Due to the Covid-19 constraints this year the OP team could not meet the students in person, however the scholarship holders sent letters introducing themselves, explaining their choice of study programme, and revealing the challenging study process, which is mostly remote. The scholarship holders would like to thank the OP staff for the scholarship and the opportunity to grow and improve.
“The OP Bank scholarship will provide an even greater incentive and motivation to study and acquire knowledge, because I would not want to disappoint you! Additional financial support allows each student to improve and grow, because they can devote more time and focus on the learning process. I have always strived to improve myself and I hope that I will succeed in the future, including with the help of this scholarship. So again, thank you very much!” a student of Riga Technical University writes in his letter.
OP team wishes strength and good health to the scholarship holders during this pandemic and hopes that the learning process can take place in person again as soon as possible!
