The Support the Next Success Story in Kosovo campaign is the overarching campaign for all student scholarships supported by philanthropic community such as yourself. Within the broader campaign, several other subcampaigns have emerged geared towards specifically named scholarships that support undepriviledged students in Kosovo.
One such campaign is also Artan Venhari Memorial Scholarship, named after our beloved collegue who lost his life tragically in 2019. The aim of the scholarship is to support exceptional students with demonstrated financial need to study Governance and Public Policy at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K).
The AVMS Scholarship was also featured as a Microproject connected to this campaign in the past three months.
The two scholars awarded the scholarship have sent the following video message of apprechiation to you - click to see video.
