BA: Automation and Applied Informatics
With the help of the Yardi scholarship and an Erasmus funding, I was able to complete a summer internship at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Bremen, Germany. I learned a lot about robotics and artificial intelligence working towards my goal of becoming a researcher.
MA: Media Communications
Yardi helped me achieve my educational and career goals by supporting my dream of becoming a visual developer. The scholarship funded my goal of creating VR content to help people who suffered from a stroke to recover as quickly as possible.
BA: Computer Science
My Yardi Romania scholarship was a big help for my future plans and visions, not only in my humanitarian actions but especially with my research projects, allowing me to attend conferences in the medical engineering field.
This scholarship is one of my most important professional and personal achievements so far. It offered me the possibility to stay in Cluj and continue my studies, covering my monthly expenses. Moreover, I plan to allocate a part of it for Erasmus projects. Through this scholarship, Yardi showed me that hard work is recognized, and it eventually pays off.
PhD: Communication Sciences
The Yardi scholarship has been the right thing in the right moment. It helped me upgrade my equipment for teaching, helping my students to better grasp the concepts. Also, it enriched my university scholarships and allowed me to enjoy more my work abroad.
BA: Computer Engineering
I wanted to study abroad for one semester, but the grant from home did not cover all the costs. Thanks to the Yardi Romania scholarship, I could go stress-free to University College Cork, that’s ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide. Yardi rewards hard-working people, so I encourage you all to apply!
PhD: Communication Sciences
The scholarship helped me finally tick off an Erasmus student exchange program from my bucket list. I studied in Mittweida, Germany for 3 months, focusing on my PhD thesis. I also attended my first international conference abroad, using the scholarship funds for fees and fares. It wasn’t all work and no play, I also did a bit of traveling here and there.
BA: Computer Science
The Yardi scholarship allowed me to pursue my career goals by providing me with the financial means to upgrade my electronics home lab with new tools and devices and thus, helped me develop my personal and work-related projects. I feel this has pushed me further on my personal development path and I want to thank them for taking the initiative each year to make a change for so many students.
