Description:
DIGIS has launched the Scholarship Program to draw attention of American juniors to the interesting world of software engineering. We are proud of being committed to bringing IT technologies to our everyday life and to building the software that helps us and empowers us to become better, more successful, and more human. All this cannot be implemented without true professionals and movers and shakers of the IT evolution. With our Program, we want to find such passionarians among American students who are finishing their high school studies or starting their college or university academic programs. Although the winner is going to be only one, we are sure that the remaining participants will be enriched as well. They will learn how to cope with real-life challenges most software developers face when applying for a new project; they will also discover how to collect proofs of their skills and present them properly.

Moreover, the best 5 applicants will get another opportunity: DIGIS will arrange the interview for them with possible future internship at DIGIS.
