1 sphere of action: Education
Founded in 2005 by Martin Bouygues to promote equal opportunity for all, the Francis Bouygues Foundation supports motivated and deserving school leavers from low-income families so that they can pursue long-term studies and fulfil their ambitious career goals.
Financial aid & moral support
Each year, the Francis Bouygues Foundation hands out around 60 grants ranging between €1,500 to €5,000 per year, which can be added to the French state student grant. This financial support is renewed each year until a higher education diploma is obtained.
“I’m very enthusiastic about being a mentor for Arefa and delighted to have the opportunity to help this young student in her choices that can help guide her future career. I will do everything possible to make this experience a success. As well as being involved on a personal level, the entire team at GTOI is making the most of this great opportunity to support equal opportunity and reaffirm our values. ”
