#corporatenews, #scholarship, #students
Teltonika is continuing its scholarship programme "The Future Belongs to Me!", which has been running for the third year. From 8 May onwards, prospective first-year students in the fields of technology, engineering and programming will be able to apply for annual scholarships of €3,000 (€300 for 10 months).
By organising the scholarship programme, the Teltonika group of companies aims to encourage young people to venture into the world of technology and engineering. Since 2021, 200 first-year students have already received Teltonika scholarships worth a total of €600,000. It is the largest privately-organised scholarship programme in Lithuania.
"There is a growing consensus that there is already a shortage of engineers and technologists in Lithuania, and that the shortage will be even worse in the future. That's why we continue a scholarship programme in cooperation with Lithuanian higher education institutions. This is to encourage young talents to choose engineering and IT fields of study at the best Lithuanian higher education institutions and to acquire valuable knowledge in engineering, electronics, mechanics or computer science," says Julius Purlys, director of the Teltonika High-Tech Hill that runs the scholarship programme "The Future Belongs to Me!".
It is planned that by the summer, students and teachers will be invited to a series of remote meetings to learn more about the scholarship programme and the application process. More information can be found on the Teltonika website dedicated to this scholarship programme, where the application form will also be published on 8 May. The application form can be completed until the beginning of September and the scholarships will be announced at the beginning of the school year.
Annual scholarships of €3,000 will be awarded to the most talented first-year students in the fields of technology, engineering and programming. The selection process will focus on the candidates' technological and engineering achievements and skills, their motivation, and may also take into account their academic performance.
10 higher education institutions participate in the Teltonika scholarship programme: Vilnius University, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Kaunas University of Technology, Vytautas Magnus University, Klaipeda University, Kaunas University of Applied Engineering Sciences, Kaunas University of Applied Sciences, Utena University of Applied Sciences, Vilnius University of Applied Sciences, Alytus College. The scholarship is open to prospective first-year students who will receive their maturity diploma in 2023 and who have chosen one of the 32 technological study programmes taught at these educational institutions.
