Free education for persons with disabilities

Each year, LINK group provides free education for disabled people who wish to study at ITAcademy, BusinessAcademy and InternetAcademy in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania.
 
The recipients have direct access to practical skills and knowledge, thus becoming competitive on the labour market in the profession of their choice. Free scholarships for disabled people amounting to €40,000 are awarded regularly, each year.
 
The recipients are selected through a competition, and in 2016/2017, one scholarship was reserved for a Paralympian chosen by the Olympic Committee of Serbia.

 

Support that changed the lives of many

We are well-aware of the fact that there are many talented individuals among us who are prevented from developing themselves due to financial reasons; who are motivated and want to make a change in their lives, but do not have the means to do so. Therefore, we strive to make education at our institutions available to them.
 
So, in cooperation with B92, LINK group awarded two free scholarships for ITAcademy and BusinessAcademy for the 2015/2016 school year, having selected two out of several hundred candidates who had sent their applications and excellent motivational letters.
 
In 2016, ITAcademy and Infostud organized a campaign in which all those interested in IT professions had a chance to win a free one-year education programme at ITAcademy. Among several hundred participants motivated by various reasons, the ITAcademy scholarship went to IT engineer Boris Bojat from Novi Sad, on account of his great aspiration to enhance his IT skills. 

At the Job Fair in Sarajevo, we awarded two scholarships to talented visitors who had written the best motivational letter. Nađa Zubčević became a BusinessAcademy student at the Entrepreneurship department, while Dženan Ganović chose the Programming department at ITAcademy.
 
We have also helped the youngest, by providing a scholarship for a one-year education programme at ITAcademy for the children at the Centre for the Protection of Infants, Children and Youth in Belgrade. The valuable prizes were awarded as part of an interesting competition in which the participants wrote essays on the following topic: Internet in children’s shelters – a chance for a better future.
 
In 2016, the Information Technology School (ITS) provided a scholarship for Nenad Pavlović, a boy fighting a rare disease, who had publicly declared his wish to one day become a student at ITS. Two years before, a scholarship was given to Alen Mustafić, a boy with a hyperkinetic disorder and developmental disabilities with elements of autism, who thought he would never be able to study.
 
We have also shown that there are no obstacles to education in the case of Boško Marković. ITHS students and teachers met this boy during a charity workshop at the Drop-In Centre, where they acknowledged his love for computers and decided to provide him with a scholarship that would enable him to have a well-deserved education. The Information Technology High School (ITHS) helped him continue his education, and he promised to honour the trust placed in him.
 
However, this is just the beginning - many similar stories are yet to come.
