October 2014 will mark the start of 9th edition of Justyna Moniuszko Scholarship Program.
GE Company Polska and the Warsaw Institute of Aviation offer a Scholarship Program to commemorate the victims of the Smolensk crash. The scholarship is financed from a special grant that GE businesses funded after the tragedy to be used for a cause benefiting Polish citizens. The Warsaw Institute of Aviation matched that grant with additional funding, increasing the total amount.
The scholarship’s name refers to Justyna Moniuszko, one of the victims of the Smolensk crash. She studied at the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering (MEiL) of the Warsaw University of Technology and was also an intern at the Engineering Design Center.
EDC Scholarship Program is addressed to the students of the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering. The goal of the scholarship is not only financial support but also popularization of the engineering culture among students by enabling them to participate in internships, meetings with engineers and career development trainings.
A specially organized committee evaluates all applications and selects the best students for the program. So far, eleven scholarships rounds have been granted to the winner applicants. The next winner applicant will be selected for the program in November 2014. We are waiting for applications between October 17th and October 31st 2014.
