40 new scholarship holders of the “Trajche Mukaetov” Foundation

The “Trajche Mukaetov” Foundation granted 40 new scholarships to undergraduate students of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Faculty of Medicine at “Sts Cyril and Methodius” University in Skopje on 28 October 2011 for the 2010/2011 academic year: 20 scholarships to students of pharmacy and 20 to students of medicine. The scholarship in the amount of 6.500 MKD is granted for a period of 12 months.

In line with its commitment to support young and ambitious people who have dedicated their careers to health and pharmacy in Macedonia, as of the 2009/2010 academic year, the “Trajche Mukaetov” Foundation also grants a one-off premium in the amount of € 1000 in MKD equivalent to the best students in a generation from the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Pharmacy.

Elena Kochova from the Faculty of Medicine and Tanja Bakovska from the Faculty of Pharmacy at “Ss Cyril and Methodius University” - with grade point averages of 10.00 and 9.35, respectively - are the best students in their generation at the respective faculties in the 2010/2011 academic year.

Starting from the 2007/2008 academic year, the “Trajche Mukaetov” Foundation has granted scholarship to a total number of 182 students of pharmacy and medicine, including the most recent 40 scholarships awarded in the academic year 2011/12. Of those, 46 students of pharmacy and 11 students of medicine have already graduated.

Scholarship holders who meet the criteria envisaged continue to be beneficiaries in the following academic year. In the period between 2009 and today, 12 of the students who received scholarship from the Foundation began their career in “Alkaloid AD Skopje” in the sector of pharmacy.

Projects completed thus far confirm the accomplishment of the Foundation’s commitments to support pharmacy, medicine and science, primarily by supporting young and ambitious people who have dedicated their career to these areas.

The Foundation was established in the honour of Trajche Mukaetov, who came at the head of “Alkaloid AD Skopje” in 1985. His leadership was marked with intensification of growth and development of the enterprise, turning it into a leading pharmaceutical company in the region. In line with his dedication to permanent development, this great man of strategy and vision considered the increased level of investments in scientific and research development activities a major parameter for the desired prosperity.
