About the Aker Foundation
The Aker foundation was established in 2015 by Anne Grete Eidsvig and Kjell Inge Røkke Charitable Foundation for Education in cooperation with Aker ASA, an industrial investment company based in Norway. Aker solutions group also supports the Karanba project and Stiftelsen VI (the WE Foundation).
Aker Scholarship was founded to support ambitious and talented Norwegian students or students with a strong link to Norway by giving them the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study at one of the best universities in the world. The scholarships are funded by gifts from TRG AS, a Norway-based production firm owned by the Rokke family.
There is more to the Aker scholarship than financial support, scholars get access to a lot of benefits which I mentioned in this article. It comes with no strings attached.
