The Scholarship is awarded to persons or non-profit organisations that have made achievements that bring people together.

Portfolio companies owned by Accent Equity funds nominate the candidates for the Scholarship.

All recipients are fine examples of strong local initiatives working for better social environment, and it is Accent Equity Partners’ great pleasure to be able to support these associations.
