® Azercell allocates scholarships to students participating in the Patriotic War
The “Student Scholarship” program implemented by “Azercell Telecom” LLC has been providing scholarships to students with higher education and high performance in many fields, as well as information technology, for more than a decade. This year, unlike previous years, the program assisted to students who left their education incomplete to take part in the battles for the freedom of Azerbaijani lands. Thus, Azercell decided to award a scholarship to 23 students from various universities in Baku and other regions.

The students selected for the Scholarship Program study in various courses, mainly in IT and Network-related specialties. Among the scholars, there are young fellows doing their bachelor’s, as well as master’s degrees. Students will receive a scholarship of 200 AZN for each academic month until the end of their studies. At the same time, the winners of the scholarship program, who are Azercell Prepaid subscribers, will receive a 30% discount on GencOl 9 tariff and a 6-month subscription to the world-famous Busuu program.
Within the confines of the project, an online meeting with the students was organized on the 10th of February, 2021 with the participation of Vahid Mursaliyev, President of “Azercell Telecom” LLC, and department directors. The event was also attended by Yashar Omarov, Head of the Department of Science, Higher and Secondary Special Education of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
