Elise-Ann Schrijvers wins Thales Scholarship

Elise-Ann Schrijvers, B.Sc. student in the TE group, has been awarded a Thales Scholarship.

The prize, which is intended to encourage female students to pursue a career in engineering, includes a scholarship of € 5,000, to be spent on an M.Sc. study program in an engineering field.

In order to qualify, participants were asked to submit a CV, motivation letter and transcript. Among these, twenty were invited for the in-house selection day, which took place at Thales’ new main building in Hengelo on June 19. The selection procedure consisted of a business case presentation and an interview round, resulting in ten winners that were granted a scholarship.

Elise-Ann is currently carrying out her B.Sc. assignment in the TE group. She will start an M.Sc. program in the second half of 2014.
