New tech bursary launched

7 March 2024

The WCIT Charity is delighted to launch its inaugural bursary, the WCIT Bursary in Tech. Aimed at postgraduate researchers, the award will be worth £5,000 a year for up to three years.

All UK universities are welcome to apply on behalf of their research students before the deadline of May 31, 2024 and full application guidelines, terms and conditions can be found here.

The bursary builds on the success of the Charity’s former University IT Awards, which recognised outstanding emerging talent in undergraduate students studying computer science.

Stefan Fafinski DL, Chair of the WCIT Charity, said: “We are delighted to introduce this bursary for PhD researchers. It is a key strand in our ten-year strategy, in which we also aim to dramatically increase the Charity’s grant-making capacity in order to unlock the power of IT for good.”
