Supporting students in the long term

Natixis received many high quality applications. The motivation and involvement of students as well as the excellence of the projects attest to the relevance of such an initiative.

Natixis seeks to develop a special relationship with schools and universities. This approach forms part of actions spearheaded throughout the year for students; Natixis' participation in a wide range of forums demonstrates its willingness to understand the young people's needs and to showcase the diversity of its businesses and assignments to future graduates.

"The high level of student participation again underscores the energy and commitment of these many talented young people. Natixis is very proud to help them carry out their solidarity projects", highlighted Alain Delouis, Chief HR Officer of Natixis


To learn more about Natixis' C.A.M.P.U.S. Awards

Natixis launched a call for solidarity projects among French Ivy League school and university students in 2011.

Entitled C.A.M.P.U.S. Awards, its goal is to encourage and support student initiatives that mirror Natixis' community-minded commitment to civil society.

To meet these commitments, two prize categories, i.e. socio-cultural and socio-sports, have been created.
