Kostya Solyar, head of Scholarship Committee, said: "Participation in such uneasy competition, and particularly in its second round, is already a victory, since participants had enough courage and inspiration to be among 10 winners out of thousands of their peers – students of universities from Kyiv and Kyiv region".

The winners of the scholarship contest are:

І place Oleksandr Joffe, Institute of International Relations of the Kyiv Shevchenko University

IІ place Inesa Letych, Kyiv Mohyla Academy

ІII place Orest Matviychuk, National Tax Service University

While congratulating the finalists, Igor Svechkar, Asters partner and one of the initiators of the contest, said: "We are proud to continue the tradition of the contest and also of the fact that those who successfully ran for victory in the First Contest now sit on the Scholarship Committee. I believe that internship at our law firm and the opportunity to be inspired with the mentorship, teamwork, and professionalism will become for this year winners a priceless reward in terms of experience and a genuine benchmark for their future career."

Asters law firm is pleased to congratulate the winners, also expressing its gratitude to them, their professors and mentors for the fundamental training and proficiency in defending their knowledge, and wishing them successes, self-mastery, and firmness of their purpose for further fulfillment.

For those interested, the ultimate score of the finalists was determined on a cumulative basis, considering the scores received for each assignment picked up by them.
