Memorial Buzzi - Heading


Franco Buzzi Memorial Scholarship

To honor Franco Buzzi’s memory, Buzzi Unicem has developed an initiative that reflects things that Franco loved: the company, to which he dedicated his life; brilliant young people who could represent the company’s future nourishment and the USA.

This is why Buzzi Unicem will award every year, on a continuing basis, a scholarship that will provide the employees’ sons and daughters with the unique opportunity to attend a Master in Business and Administration at one of these prestigious universities:

  • McCombs School of Business – University of Texas, Austin
  • Smeal College of Business – Penn State University, University Park, PA
  • Kelley School of Business – Indiana University, Bloomington
  • College of Business and Economics – Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA(1)

The MBA programs we selected are generally 2-year, full-time that Buzzi Unicem will fully fund, thus covering not only tuition and fees, but also standard ancillary costs (travel, insurance, living costs, etc.). All employees’ sons and daughters, from all of the group’s countries, can apply. They must meet the requirements set by the Business School’s admissions criteria, regarding age, bachelor’s degree, work experience, English proficiency and analytical skills.

Transparency and fairness are key to us, so Buzzi Unicem will not in any way be involved in the evaluation and selection process. That process will be managed by the chosen university. The only way to submit the application is online, on the school’s website. Once the selection phase is complete, the first endowed student will attend the MBA program according to the university schedule.
