The tuition fees and the rising costs of living space in the Bavarian city are topics that primarily concern the students of Regensburg. In addition to the demanding computer science study course, a variety of part-time jobs preoccupy students so that they can cope with the costs that arise during their studies. This is a burden which the Regensburg-based IT service provider DRACOON, which has established itself as the market leader in German-speaking countries in the area of Enterprise File Sharing, now wants to belittle with a smart initiative. Many employees still remember their own student days: A time in which their own budgets were tight
In keeping with its motto “Knowledge is power – become a Jedi of your field”, the young and dynamic company is now digging into its own pocket. With a book allowance of 500 Euros per student, the Regensburg-based company wants to support five outstanding computer science students in their studies at the OTH Regensburg University of Applied Sciences
This project is especially dear to the DRACOON CTO, Florian Scheuer. “We have a very clear goal. With this action we want to reward the initiative and the performance in the field of IT and make the way a little easier for young students who dedicate themselves to their studies, “explains Scheuer. “Our roots and our headquarters are in Regensburg, which gives us the best reason to help young IT professionals right on the spot,” Florian Scheuer continues
The application deadline is 15 December 2017. Until then, all Regensburg students of a computer science subject who have completed the 2nd Bachelor study stage with a grade of 2.0 or better can apply under www.dracoon.de/buechergeld.
