A young Bulgarian studying in Milan, Italy, won the special Hristo Botev scholarship that is being granted for the first time this year.

The project was launched by the Hristo Botev Foundation, named after the legendary Bulgarian revolutionary, journalist and poet, and the country's first center for professional education in marketing PR and communications - M3 Communications College.

The scholarship is allotted to students in humanitarian subjects - political and social sciences, journalism, sociology, communications and public administration - at esteemed European universities.

The BGN 1,500 check was handed Tuesday to the mother of winner Stoyan Radoslavov. The 21-year-old is studying at Milan's prestigious Libera Universita di Lingue e Comunicazione.

A third of the sum was granted personally by Maxim Behar, Chairman of M3 Communications College Board of Directors and CEO of M3 Communications Group, Inc., Bulgaria's leading PR agency.

He and Boyan Botev, who chairs the Hristo Botev Foundation, pledged to continue the project through the years and develop it even further. They both agreed that the best way to stimulate Bulgarian students abroad was to provide support from their motherland.

Details about applying for the scholarship are available at the Hristo Botev official website, http://www.hristobotev.com, developed by M3 Communications Group, Inc..
