Rewarding Academic Excellence
From our vantage point in the heart of Transylvania, we always get to meet with students from diverse backgrounds, with different interests and bold dreams. Watching them launch their career is both thrilling and rewarding for us as their colleagues and mentors, and for us as a company. However, we are fully aware that at Yardi Romania, we not only have the power but also the responsibility to positively impact future generations. We strongly believe that investing in education and nurturing a knowledge culture today, can impact tomorrow’s workforce and future developments.
Staying true to this, we are delighted to announce our growing investment in education. So far in 2017, we awarded 17,000 euros to students who strive both in the academic and professional fields, and who go the extra mile to launch initiatives that contribute to the growth of our local and global communities.
Starting this year, we added 12 more scholarships to our already existing Scholarship Program. We changed eligibility criteria so that the program was open to students who are enrolled in bachelor’s, master’s or PhD, technical or non-technical academic programs. We awarded a scholarship worth 1,000 euros to each one of the 15 students who made an impact through their talent, dedication, and hard work.
We asked a few of our scholars to tell us how did the Yardi Romania scholarship influenced their plans for the future, and here’s what they told us:
Radu has a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and European Studies. He is currently studying for a master’s degree in Chinese Politics, Foreign Policy, and International Relations at Tsinghua University 清华大学 in Beijing.
“The scholarship has unequivocally contributed to achieving an academic goal I have had. That is to study at a top 25 university in the world. I am deeply grateful to the team at Yardi Romania. This ideal of mine has not only become a reality in theory, but also in practice. Thank you for your appreciation and support. I encourage all those young people, who are motivated and willing to exceed their limits, to apply for this scholarship: 加油! = Jiayou! (Come On!)”

Passionate about robotics since he was in the 9th grade, Andrei is studying for a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the Faculty of Automation and Computer Science. In his free time he teaches electronics to children.
“This scholarship helped me make real progress with a couple of projects (and components for the next humanoid robot), equip my lab with a new oscilloscope and it provided the necessary funds for a custom 3D printer. I would like to say a big “Thanks, Yardi!”. Keep doing awesome things!”
He is studying Computer Science at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science in Cluj. A grade A student, who in his free time teaches programming to high school students and is part of the Kuende startup team.
“Yardi’s scholarship helped me focus more on schoolwork and my projects. It helped me cover food costs and rental payment, relieving me from daily life stress. This way I was able to invest more time in achieving what I want, be it developing a new skill, or working to grow my startup.”
Tiberiu Petru Trîmbițaș
He is studying for a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. Also, he is a former Facebook intern and a current member of the LearnHouse project, where he teaches computer science to high school and secondary school students.
“Yardi’s scholarship program gave me the opportunity to meet like-minded people with interests in various domains. Some of us scholars have started collaborating on different projects. It also allowed me to focus on long-term projects such as teaching students how to code or developing an educational platform without having to worry too much about income.”
Bianca Ioana Costin
She is studying Computer Science at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. Bianca is a grade A student, former Google intern, and active member of the LearnHouse project where she teaches computer science.
“Beginning last year I was involved in teaching and organizing activities for high school and secondary school students, with the focus of giving them the ability to pursue a career in computer science. This year some friends and I have started working on projects that oftentimes require some level of financing. Thus, at this stage the scholarship that I received from Yardi is very helpful.”
