MILAN – Nurturing talent, rewarding excellence and introducing new graduates and students to the work force and business world.

The company's commitment
“Eurozone data on youth employment is not only a worrisome trend but also shows the advancing of a widespread sense of uncertainty in the future – stated Stefano Agostini, President and CEO of Gruppo Sanpellegrino – Through this Award, now in its third year, we try to instill a little more enthusiasm in our youth by rewarding skills, merit and the tenacity of those who want to stand out”.
The Sanpellegrino Campus Award
The Award, created in collaboration with Tesionline, is aimed at graduates and undergraduates who are interested in "Water and Well-Being", "Environmental and Economic Sustainability" and "Made in Italy". The categories chosen this year are three areas that are important for the economy and the well-being of our country. All graduates of all majors may take part in the allocation of three scholarships of a value of 1,500 Euro that have undertaken a thesis for a bachelor's degree or master's degree in an Italian or Foreign University during the period between January 2012 and December 31, 2015. The work will be judged by a jury of experts, including University Professors, Journalists, opinion makers and members of the Gruppo Sanpellegrino.
The category "Water and Well-Being" investigates the advantages that mineral water and water resources in General can impart in terms of well-being and health and under a cultural and social profile. In fact, it should not be forgotten that water is a rich resource asset for Italy and a traditionally symbolic product for our country. The category "Environmental and economic Sustainability" will consider all those works that explain and reinforce the idea that there is no development without sustainability. From logistics to production processes through innovation and respecting of natural resources: sustainability is an industry that creates job opportunities and conditions to take care of the future of our planet. Lastly, the category "Made in Italy" will deal with anything that has made Italian products and anything Italian a defining trait of our country in the world.
