Information Technology Scholarship

Light IT is a global software engineering company that offers web and mobile development services. We believe that information technology scholarships are a good way for students to gain experience, shape their professional selves and get a fair endowment for what they are passionate about, that’s why we have decided to launch this contest.

The task for each participant is to create a prototype of a fully-functional mobile application aimed at booking a wide range of services including classes, courses, medical appointments, tours, transportation, hotel and restaurant reservation, etc. and write a technical specification for this application. For further information on how to make a prototype of an app, please visit the Website. Read a detailed description of a technical specification document, please visit the Website.

Who Can Apply?
Undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students who are currently studying any major at any university are welcome to apply for our IT scholarships. What we expect to see in applicants is their creative mind, critical thinking, technical skills, passion, and commitment to software development.
