The EDF and Oracle have launched a scholarship for students with disabilities studying in the field of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, User Experience, or related fields enrolled at a EU university for the academic year 2016-2017.
The scholarship consists of € 8,000, to be awarded based on a project or research that will be conducted during the academic year. The Scholarship will be awarded primarily based on a project or thesis in which the needs of persons with disabilities in terms of accessibility to ICT (e-Accessibility) are taken into consideration and/or an innovative solution to enhance their access is proposed. The project must be an integral component of the educational programme undertaken by the student (e.g. final year assignment or part of their Masters or PhD). The project may either be a proposal or it can already be underway.
Eligible applicants should:
– Be European Union (EU) citizens and resident within the EU.
– Be enrolled at a university in the EU for the academic year 2016-2017, including online universities based in the EU.
– Be studying in the field of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, User Experience or related field.
