In 2022, the first graduates of KBTU established a Personalized Scholarship from KBTU Alumni in honor of Maulen Burashev, a 2006 graduate of the Faculty of Economics and Finance of KBTU (now Business School). The scholarship is sponsored by Maulen's fellow students - graduates of 2006 and 2007 and other KBTU graduates.

“Maulin was one of the successful students of our university. From his first days at KBTU, he began to actively participate in student life, as a result of which he was elected the first President of the KBTU Student Board. Under the leadership of Maulen, many student activities were carried out for the first time. Maulen was one of the founders of the KBTU debate club, and then an international debate tournament was held annually within the university’s walls under the auspices of the UN. Maulen's academic record was also outstanding. He graduated from the university with honors, and then received a master's degree from the University of Bristol and worked at KPMG, Halyk Finance, Visor Capital. He spent the last years of his working career at Halyk Leasing as a financial director and E&Y company.

  We knew Maulen as an honest, open, purposeful person and a reliable friend. Maulen personified an example of a worthy citizen of our country, and we hope that he will be an example for future generations” - graduates of 2006 and 2007.
