Our senior hurlers main sponsor, Huawei Ireland, has launched a new €250K scholarship programme for Irish third-level students.

About the Programme

Applications are now open for STEM students from Irish universities to apply for Huawei’s international learning and development programme, ‘Seeds for the Future’.

The programme offers third-level students studying in Ireland the opportunity to take part in an exclusive online event to develop their understanding of the ICT industry while also learning about Chinese culture.

Participating students also study different levels of basic and advanced courses exploring the latest developments in smart cities, AI, cloud computing, 5G and the Internet of Things. Other course options include guest lectures on digital transformation, sustainable technology and strategic leadership given by either Huawei senior engineers or guest speakers from industry thought-leaders.

The 2021 programme will also see students take part in team exercises including Huawei’s newly created Tech4Good project, which challenges participants to examine how to leverage technology to address pressing social and environmental issues. Students will present their team projects to a panel of judges with the project contributing to their eligibility for the scholarships.
