The Blandy Group grants academic scholarships to the children of its employees.
The Blandy group has implemented a program to grant academic scholarships to the children of its employees that are in higher education, beginning in the academic year of 2014/2015, which consists of a anual amount destined to paying tuition fees of higher education establishments.
The current socio-economic context, characterised by a loss of income due to a high tax burden, has given rise to in the last years, to an increased financial effort by families to tackle their essential expenses, specifically with regards to expenses with the further education of their children, creating situations where students drop out or do not apply to a higher degree of education.
In the Autonomous Region of Madeira, this financial burden put upon families is aggravated by the fact that in many cases, the admission or continuation of their children in higher education implies attending a higher education establishment outside the Region, with a significant aggravation of the costs involved.
The Blandy Group is aware that the current socioeconomic context affects, to a greater or lesser extent, all its employees who have or will have in the future, children attending higher education.
On the other hand, The Blandy group recognises the importance of the possibility of attendance and conclusion of a higher education degree by the children of its employees, and intends that this attendance should be made under the best financial conditions possible.
