The Regensburg-based software company DRACOON is promoting young IT talent in the region and has therefore awarded € 2,500 of “book allowance” to five outstanding students of computer science subjects. Under the motto “Knowledge is power – become a Jedi of your field”, the innovative company is using its own funds to support five special computer science students from the OTH Regensburg University of Applied Sciences with a book allowance of 500 euros each.
Tuition fees and the rising costs of living space in the Bavarian city are topics that particularly affect the students of Regensburg. In addition to the demanding computer science study program, several part-time jobs are often necessary to meet the fixed costs during the studies. This burden has been reduced by the Regensburg-based IT service provider DRACOON, which has meanwhile established itself as the market leader in German-speaking countries in the field of enterprise file sharing.
Especially CTO Florian Scheuer was particularly fond of this project. “With this campaign we deliberately want to reward the initiative and performance in IT in our hometown. In this way, we can make it a bit easier for the students who are particularly involved in their studies,” explains Scheuer. All students of a computer science subject who have completed the 2nd Bachelor’s stage with a 2.0 grade or better could apply.
Michael Fruth, Johannes Stark, Andreas John and Viola Schneider can now look forward to the grant. All five were invited by DRACOON to the offices in Regensburg’s Posthof and also had the opportunity to get to know the DRACOON team in this personal setting.
