ScienceSoft Grants a Scholarship to US College and University Students

Scholarship to US College and University Students - ScienceSoft

Why Do We Introduce the Scholarship?

Having 30 years of data science practice, we, at ScienceSoft, strive to raise awareness of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and popularize their real-life application. As a part of this initiative, we are launching a 2019 scholarship program to motivate college and university students to come up with the ideas about how AI can bring benefits in their future domain. We invite to participate the students of any major, be it data science, linguistics or veterinary medicine. To those students who will write the most outstanding essays, we will provide financial aid, which they can use to pay for their college or university.

Scholarship Amount

  • $2,000 for the first place winner.
  • $1,000 for the second place winner.
  • $500 for the third place winner.

Our college and university scholarship is granted for one academic year only and it’s non-renewable.

Who Qualifies?

  • Full-time students of US colleges and universities who have already finished the first year of their studies, as well as graduate students.
  • We do not set any limitations in terms of the applicant’s major and GPA.
  • ScienceSoft’s employees, their children and close relatives don’t qualify for this scholarship, thus we ensure that we are 100% neutral when selecting the winners.
