Freshmen of the Higher School of ITIS received personal grants from the Government of Tatarstan.
The annual ceremony took place in the IT Park on September 2nd.
50 grants amounting to 5 million RUB overall were awarded by the Ministry of Information and Communication of Tatarstan. The recipients were students who showed highest USE scores.
Android Arkasha (a distant relative of the famous Thespian) addressed the students in Russian and Tatar with some words of inspiration.
Minister of Information and Communication Roman Shaykhutdinov wished the students well. ‘Many IT companies want to recruit young professionals. You have to have top employees. Second, fresh blood is good for you. That means new ideas, new goals, new approaches. Try to be original in your intellectual work’, said he.
Rector of KFU Ilshat Gafurov addressed the audience as well, ‘Higher School of ITIS has the highest USE results among its peers in Russia, leaving behind MSU, ITMO, HSE, MIPT. This is the evidence of the quality of our freshmen’.
