A student of the Silesian University of Technology with a scholarship of New Technologies for Girls!

Nikola Beblik, a student of the first year of biomedical engineering at the Silesian University of Technology, was awarded a scholarship as part of the fourth edition of the "New Technologies for Girls" program, awarded by Intel and the Perspektywy Education Foundation. The scholarship ceremony took place on Thursday, October 4, at the Intel Research Center in Gdańsk. Congratulations!


Nikola Beblik comes from Tarnowskie Góry. She is the only student from the Upper Silesia who received a scholarship this year within the "New Technologies for Girls" program.

- I applied because, using my own example, I would like to promote programming and computer science among other girls - mainly younger ones who are still in primary school. I think that being a scholarship holder, I could use my own example to show that it is really worth it. Moreover, this scholarship is a great thing- I met a lot of extremely smart, young women with whom I share my own interests, I also visited the headquarters of Intel. The scholarship creates also an opportunity for summer internship at Intel, which I think is a great opportunity for development- says Nikola Beblik.

The program "New Technologies for Girls" is an answer to a small number of women involved in the field of ​​new technologies, crucial for the development of the world. According to different approaches, the number of women involved in the IT industry ranges from a few to a maximum of 15 percent. The authors of the program- the Intel Company, a leader in new technologies market, and the Perspektywy Education Foundation who also organizes, among others, "Girls to the universities of technology" actions, who  decided to jointly offer their graduates and students a support program for their development -"New technologies for girls”.

- This pioneering initiative on the Polish market aims to encourage girls to become interested in new technologies and education that is associated with their creation. We want to help talented high school graduates and students in planning and building a professional career in  technology industry or in science. The one that changes the perception of our common civilization future and examines the place of technology in the upcoming transformations-say the organizers.


Scholarship holders will receive various substantive and financial support. They will be under the care of a mentor- experienced Intel employees. They will also receive a scholarship of 12,000 PLN gross, which will cover part of the expenses they incur in connection with their studies.
