Talent for the Future - Scholarships

The Civica Scholarship Programme, supported by Queen's University Belfast and Ulster University, aims to attract and support fresh talent into the IT sector. The scheme will give several successful students a scholarship package worth up to £25,000.

The Civica Scholarship Programme supplements students’ academic learning in University with real life business experience, through working with ICT professionals who are happy to share their knowledge and experience with scholarship students. In addition to a paid bursary, students benefit from industrial experience within Civica’s Belfast office, including paid summer and year out placements.

Who can apply?

The Civica Scholarship Programme is aimed at undergraduates in Queen’s University Belfast and Ulster University in their first or second year at university, who will require a year-out placement in their third year.
