Scholarships for persons with disabilities, 2017/2018

Due to the amount of interest in its educational institutions’ programs, LINK group decided to award a number of free scholarships to persons with disabilities, with the training set to be realized online, via the distance learning platform. The free training will be awarded for programs at three educational institutions: ITAcademy (i.e. LINK Academy in Romania), BusinessAcademy and InternetAcademy, with a total value of 40,000 euros.
 
The plan is to distribute the scholarships over the three countries where LINK group’s educational institutions operate: Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Romania. The total number of these international scholarships is 20, with 8 designated for Serbia, and 6 for Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania each.
 
The objective is to provide persons with disabilities with a convenient possibility to acquire practical knowledge in business, internet and IT, which will empower them on the job market and help them to become the employer’s first choice for a number of professions in the contemporary business landscape.
