By awarding study grants to all children of company employees, in such a difficult and delicate year, the Fondazione De Rigo H.E.ART wishes to stand alongside the families and the region, offering students concrete support in their studies. Over the course of the event - a virtual live-streamed meeting open to all Group families - 216 study grants will be awarded to upper school pupils and university students.
Family values and close ties to the territory: once again, the Fondazione De Rigo H.E.ART has opted to demonstrate its solidarity with Group employees through concrete action. Considering the particular economic situation - and as an exception - the De Rigo family, through the Fondazione De Rigo H.E.ART, has decided to extend the study support grants to all children of De Rigo Vision and De Rigo Refrigeration employees.
The study grants are no longer reserved for the most deserving students, but will now go to supporting all Group families: this year, every employee will receive a study grant for each child enrolled in upper school and university.
A total of 216 students will receive the grant, with 161 currently attending upper school and 55 studying at universities.
An award ceremony that, this year, will take place virtually in the form of a live-streamed event, which will see the De Rigo family and all employees joined by a special guest: Leo Gassman. After performing an acoustic track, the young face of house brand ST!NG will talk about his school and artistic experience, as well as his social commitments, which have already seen him champion a number of important causes.
“The training, wellbeing and health of young people: here at De Rigo, these values are close to our hearts, and the Fondazione De Rigo H.E.ART is the embodiment of this concrete commitment. This is why, in such an emotionally and psychologically challenging period, we have chosen to support the right to study of the children of all ‘our’ families. A small contribution that we hope can encourage the children to strive to make their dreams come true, by engaging with their studies and training”, commented Barbara De Rigo - President of the Fondazione De Rigo H.E.ART.
