The previous winner
We’re glad to announce the winner of the first Intellias Software Engineering Scholarship Program. The winner has received a $1000 scholarship for future education. We’ve received more than 100 applications from all over the United States, and we would like to thank all who have participated.
The winner is Ryan Xu from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Our team was impressed not only by Ryan’s academic results but also by his software-related experience in Autonomous Racecar development and other engineering projects. We wish Ryan the best in developing his engineering enthusiasm into a very fulfilling engineering career. Keep going Ryan, you’re on the right track!
A few words from the winner
Hello! My name is Ryan and I am a gamer, pianist, dancer, and adventurer. I spent a lot of my high school career working on software for entertainment and utility. During the school year, I work on projects such as a Checkers game with Alpha-beta Pruning and a Buzzer app for my Quizbowl Club. During the summer, I usually work on new and exciting personal projects and volunteer at the library or organizations that help other students. Last summer, I also attended the Beaver Works Summer Institute at MIT to create an autonomous racecar. In the future, I want to continue what I am doing right now and create software that can make the world a happier and easier place to live in.
Why are we offering this scholarship?
Intellias was founded by two techies, Vitaly and Michael, who met in their Applied Math class at university and later pursued careers in software engineering. Their technical background shaped our corporate values from day one.
Here at Intellias, we’re passionate about software engineering and the innovative nature of what we do. That’s why we’re launching our student scholarship program to encourage talented young people with the same passion for technology that we have. This software development scholarship will help a high school, college, or university student to achieve their goals in a technical field of study and their future career.
We constantly support local IT communities in Ukraine, the country where we’re based, and contribute to new educational programs in Ukraine’s most prominent universities. We’ve helped establish technology labs for the Internet of Things program at the National University ‘Lviv Polytechnic’ and a Data Science lab at the Ukrainian Catholic University.
Our grant for high school students is aimed at shaping the future of the software engineering industry globally. We know that raising the funds for education isn’t easy, especially for talented young people who spend their time studying hard. That’s why we’re offering this opportunity to get a college scholarship. This software development scholarship program can help you explore your talents.
Put simply, we want to support a talented young techie who would like to pursue the dream to innovate and disrupt our tech-first world.
Here are some of the things we’re currently working on at Intellias:
- Autonomous driving, our core expertise
- A Location Data Platform, an essential part of the autonomous world
- Artificial Intelligence in learning foreign languages
