ERSAI Scholarship Programme

Since 2009, Ersai (Saipem’s local company in Kazakhstan) has successfully implemented its scholarship programme for school-leavers from low-income families in the village of Kuryk.
The main purpose is to support students from needy families by financing their studies at one of the state universities of Kazakhstan in the specialisations required by the Company (i.e. welding engineers, electricians, mechanical engineers, ecologists, certification engineers, etc.). Ersai provides tuition payment for 5 years, a monthly allowance and transport costs. The annual selection of candidates takes place in two stages: a preliminary test and an interview.

Total students enrolled in the programme: +25
Graduate students working for ERSAI: +10


Since 2015, the Talentissimo programme in Angola has aimed to develop students’ technical competences and employability, by closing the gap between university and industrial standards and increasing Saipem’s talent attraction. In 2017, 8 students from two local universities participated in a 3-month internship programme to work on structural and subsea structure design under the guidance of Saipem engineers.
Over 170 students have participated in the programme since its launch.
