Promoting talent: EASY is granting a new scholarship

EASY SOFTWARE AG is now entering its second year of promoting young talent: in 2014, EASY started our cooperation with the Hochschule Ruhr West (HRW – University of Applied Sciences Ruhr West) at our headquarters in Mühlheim on the Ruhr river. Our goal: to promote young, talented students in information technology.

After a successful start last year, EASY is again granting a scholarship this year endowed with a 300 euro per month stipend. This time, EASY SOFTWARE is giving the scholarship to a strong student in the subject of “Human and Technological Interaction.” Clarissa Dubiel, head of HR at EASY, emphasized that the scholarship is more than just financial support. “We want to arouse interest for our fields of activity, and of course also make contact with talented students.”

Exchange and practical experience

Interested young professionals can get a practical look at the various types of work EASY does even during their studies. “The content of the Human and Technological Interaction program fits in well with our fields of activity,” continued Dubiel. Product development is a particular area of interest. “It’s important to us to offer tangible support during the student’s education, both financially and practically,” the HR head said, emphasizing the importance of early exchanges with qualified young professionals to arouse interest from students as a potential attractive employer.

Other companies besides EASY are also promoting young talent and supporting students – both those with good grades and those with a clear passion for social engagement – and providing financial aid to help them complete their degrees.
