Uralkali has awarded scholarships to the five best students from the Berezniki Branch of the Perm National Research Polytechnic University (BB PNRPU).

The awards ceremony took place during the Youth Science for Regional Development International Conference of Students and Young Scientists. Students in their third and fourth years studying Technological Machinery and Equipment and Chemical Technology of Inorganic Substances courses were given scholarships according to their examination results in the first term of the 2015-2016 academic year.

The main selection criteria were strong academic performance, the writing of scientific papers in the Companys field of activity and successful completion of practical training.

Furthermore, Uralkali gifted Samsung tablets to three pupils from the town of Berezniki, who scored full marks in maths, physics and chemistry competitions. The competitions were organised jointly by Uralkali and BB PNRPU.

Ruslan Ilyasov, HR Director of Uralkali, said:
