About the founder of the scholarship
The founder of the scholarship, Mr. Ignas Bielevičius, who is currently engaged in activities that combine information technology and financial markets, says that he is grateful to VMU for his own discoveries and has no doubt that encouragement of the young people opens the door to even greater opportunities and new achievements.
“It has always seemed to me that the encouragement of the young people is necessary, so I am glad that when I had an opportunity to contribute to it, I did not hesitate and implemented an idea that I had in mind for quite some time. I believe that motivating talented students is a mutually beneficial initiative in many different ways, the most important of which is the opportunity to contribute to the strengthening of the community. I am grateful to VMU associate professor, Mr. Rūstis Kamuntavičius for helping me in discovering interesting activities and encouraging me to establish these scholarships for students”, – VMU graduate Ignas Bielevičius shared his thoughts.
