On September 26, six young Nigeriens selected from among the best students in the 2010-2011 school year came to AREVA’s offices in Niamey to complete the last formalities to receive the scholarships awarded to them for outstanding academic performance.

Since 2008, the Group has rewarded the most deserving students by helping them to continue their studies at institutions of higher learning in France and Africa.

Four students from the School of Mining and Geology (EMIG) were awarded scholarships. Two of them will complete their degrees in electromechanical engineering with a year of courses at the French engineering school Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers (ENSAM) in Paris, while the two others will study for an occupational degree in maintenance, management and repair of civil engineering equipment at an engineering institute (Institut d’Ingénierie de l’Eau et de l’Environnement) at Ouagadougou, in Burkina Faso, while also completing their training as senior industrial maintenance technicians.

The top two high school students in the field of science in Niger and the Agadez region have also been given scholarships, one to do preparatory courses in chemistry at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and the other to do preparation for the top engineering schools in Morocco.

In the past three years, AREVA has given financial aid in this way to fifteen young Nigeriens to enable them to continue their education.
