Within the framework of its EducaSID social responsibility program, Grupo SID will award 100% covered scholarships for technical careers with the support of MercaSID, Induveca, Agua Crystal, and Induspalma.
Grupo SID signed an inter-institutional collaboration agreement with the Loyola Polytechnic Specialized Institute of Higher Studies, through which it will grant 5 100% covered scholarships in different technical careers.
The scholarships are intended for excelling students of Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics Technologist, Food Processing, and Design and Manufacturing, who will be able to carry out internships in companies of the SID Group.
The company’s initiative, through its EducaSID program, with the support of MercaSID, Induveca, Agua Crystal, and Induspalma, is part of its purpose of contributing to the right to education of citizens, a path that breaks the siege of poverty and contributes to the development of the country.
“At Grupo SID, we maintain the purpose of continuing to leave traces of growth that transcends our history, for which we are assuming a firm and responsible commitment to education in our country,” said Ligia Bonetti, president.
The EducaSID program guarantees the right to education of vulnerable people, focuses on eradicating illiteracy, and promotes education for sustainable development based on human rights and sustainable living guidelines.
Likewise, Bonetti expressed the satisfaction of having chosen the Loyola Institute to sign an inter-institutional collaboration agreement to grant scholarships since the companies of Grupo SID have professionals who graduated from that academy who are valued for their technical skills—the performance of their tasks and, above all, a solid base in principles and values.
Father José Victoriano, Rector of the Loyola Institute, and Ligia Bonetti, Grupo SID’s Executive President led this agreement’s signing. With this agreement, Grupo SID continues its mission of allocating resources to Dominican education through education to leave a legacy, an essential contribution to the future of the Dominican Republic.
Also participating in the event were Nieves Ramos, Corporate Director of Human Resources, and Leyna Barroso, Manager of Talent and Organizational Change of Grupo SID, and authorized members of the Loyola Institute.
