For fourteen years, Trajche Mukaetov Foundation has been awarding scholarships for students to attend the faculties of pharmacy and medicine at St. Kiril and Metodij University in Skopje. Following the public call for applications, the Foundation's Management Board selected the 2021/2022 scholarship recipients from the shortlist proposed by the Scholarship Committee, which consists of representatives of the Foundation, both faculties, and the students.

Forty new scholarships were awarded this year to 20 students of the Faculty of Pharmacy and 20 students of the Faculty of Medicine at St. Kiril and Metodij University in Skopje. This year, the one-off grant of 1.200 EUR in MKD equivalent, awarded by the Foundation to the top students of both faculties for 12 years, went to Zoran Gavrilov from the Faculty of Pharmacy (GPA 9.49) and Milena Grivchevska from the Faculty of Medicine (GPA 9.94). Both of them are scholarship holders of the Trajche Mukaetov Foundation.

“I am very pleased that in the past 14 years, Alkaloid and the Trajche Mukaetov Foundation are part of the success stories of 579 students of pharmacy and medicine at the state universities. I am even happier knowing that our company stimulates and motivates students in their education to achieve new, higher successes in their professions where education is of exceptional importance. To date, 92 of the award recipients have already started their careers in our company. Despite the challenges of the new era requiring specific functioning of the processes in all areas, our effort to invest in education and knowledge - in people first of all - will remain our company’s top priority,” said Zhivko Mukaetov, President of the Trajche Mukaetov Foundation and CEO of Alkaloid AD Skopje.

With the forty 2021/2022 academic year recipients, the Foundation supported a total of 579 students of pharmacy and medicine since the 2007/2008 academic year. 218 pharmacy and 211 medical students have already graduated. Since 2009, ninety-two of the scholarship recipients - eighty-five pharmacy and seven medical students - started their careers at the Alkaloid Pharmaceuticals Department.

The scholarship grants 6.500 Denars for 12 months, and by 30 October 2021, the Trajche Mukaetov Foundation has awarded a total of 109.975.568,00 Denars in scholarships and one-off grants for top students.
