Financial energy for your future: #vorangehen (#proceed) with the VERBUND Scholarship for Women

VERBUND specifically supports highly qualified women in collaboration with TU Wien. With the VERBUND Scholarship for Women, three outstanding female students at TU Wien are supported for a whole year.

The main objective is to acquire technicians for VERBUND and to promote their personal further development with a shot of financial energy.

Dedicated students from technical fields of study may apply: information technology, business informatics, industrial engineering, technical mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or civil engineering.

It is important that the applicants have already garnered professional experience in the form of study-related internships. Excellent English skills are a must, and other foreign language skills would be a plus.

“I applied for the VERBUND Scholarship for Women because I believe it is important to support women in technology. I see VERBUND as being a company that prioritises sustainability and our environment. As women, we are under-represented in many MINT professions. The challenge is to break down certain stereotypes. Acquired knowledge knows no gender, background or religion.”

Pia Schwarzinger, Master of Data Science

“When I was 16 years old, I had the opportunity to explore the specialism of Information Technology for the first time during my semester abroad in Canada. This experience turned out to be really fascinating; in particular, the feeling of being able to solve complex problems using technology was ultimately what attracted me to study for my degree at the Vienna University of Technology. The challenges associated with MINT professions are in many ways comparable with those in other areas of activity. Ultimately, however, passion and unconditional ambition are decisive for personal success and I’m convinced that this applies regardless of gender.”

Sandra Szedenik, Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

“I must confess that I’ve never once felt confronted by any obstacles in my career as a woman. But I can understand that many women can feel deterred by working or studying as one of the few who do so in this field. Personally, I’d like to see more women in my discipline because I think that more women would bring a new and refreshing perspective to many aspects in the field of technology.”
