IIT InfoSchol Scholarship
Offered by Informatics Institute of Technology - IIT
InfoSchol is a 5-year work/study programme offered by IIT and associated corporate partners.
The programme is unique of its kind as it provides students with an academic scholarship paid by corporate sponsors throughout the 5 years of their academic studies. At the same time, the students will work full-time for their sponsors, getting paid a monthly stipend in addition.
The uniqueness and competitive advantage of this scholarship programme lies in the 5-year work experience that students get while studying. When an InfoSchol student graduates, his/her entry salary in the job market is usually higher than that of a full-time student who graduates after 4 years. Work experience, training on the job, social competencies and a company-oriented attitude in addition to the academic studies are gaining more and more importance with employers who do not only look at the graduation result of a candidate but at the candidate holistically – especially at his/her competencies in 'Emotional Intelligence'.
IIT is offering this scholarship programme to dedicated candidates who not only have good A level results but understand the extra benefits and competitive advantage over ‘traditional academic courses’ offered by the educational sector.
A scholarship is an award and privilege not everybody gets in life!
Selected scholars will follow BEng/BSc degrees at IIT campus, offered by the University of Westminster, UK. The duration of the programme is 5 years and the programme will be conducted completely free of charge. Being employed as full time interns in leading companies in Sri Lanka, the scholars will be paid a monthly allowance by the respective organization.
Upon completion of the degree, scholars will have 5 years of work experience, making them highly employable locally and internationally.
