The goal of SA Southwestern Advantage is to promote the entrepreneurial education and experience of young people in the European countries where the Southwestern Advantage student program operates. This was the first time Entrepreneurial Youth Scholarship was offered in Lithuania and the recipient of the scholarship was Martynas Šimkus.

The purpose of the Entrepreneurial Youth Scholarship competition is to recognize and support entrepreneurial and active young people. The amount of the scholarship was €1,000 and a total of 11 students from the Faculty of Economics of Vilnius Tech applied. Applicants were offered the opportunity to take part in a seminar where Southwestern Advantage sales managers shared their knowledge of entrepreneurship, presenting and leadership skills.

Southwestern Advantage and university representatives, as well as students themselves, were able to vote for the best nominee. As a result we are extremely happy to announce that Martynas Šimkus was selected as the recipient of the SW Entrepreneurial Youth 2024 scholarship in Lithuania.

Southwestern Advantage Foundation’s vision is to be the biggest charitable foundation in Eastern Europe that is built on investment principles and helping young people in obtaining knowledge and developing character so they can fulfill their dreams in life. We help European youth get better entrepreneurship education and offer investment knowledge to those who do not have the opportunity. We are working to reduce and prevent poverty.

We only donate money from the fund’s passive income by directing 50% of the return to charity and 50% back to the fund. That is how your good deed will remain giving forever.
