Senior level students participating in the upcoming BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in January will now be in with a chance to win a university scholarship. The winners will be able to choose one of the seven universities in the Republic of Ireland, BT announced today.
For the first time, scholarships of €1,000 will be awarded to every fifth and sixth year student that wins first place in either the individual or group categories at the exhibition. A €2,000 scholarship will be awarded to any fifth and sixth year student that wins the overall 2015 BT Young Scientist & Technologist(s) of the Year award.
