UL announces new software engineering scholarship

University of Limerick.

UNIVERSITY of Limerick (UL) and software company MongoDB have announced a new scholarship that will fund a ‘bold initiative’ promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion in software engineering.

The scholarship, which will be funded by MongoDB, is for software engineering students on UL’s innovative Immersive Software Engineering (ISE) programme.

ISE is a transformational teaching and research initiative that aims to “rethink and disrupt” computer science education.

The scholarship of €10,000 will assist recipients with tuition fees, books, and other educational expenses, and will specifically support diversity within the ISE programme across each of the diversity characteristics set out in the Equal Status Act.
