BIO-GEN science scholarships awarded
On 30 November 2022, the scholarship programme of the Mayor of the City of Łódź and the programmes of employers participating in the ‘Young in Łódź’ project were summarised. BIO-GEN presented its research scholarships.
“Youth in Łódź” is the largest initiative of its kind in Poland. Together with the Department of Biotechnology and Food Sciences at the Technical University of Łódź, we were looking for young talent from the Biotechnology faculty for paid internships and placements in the BIO-GEN laboratory. A prerequisite for participation was the achievement of good academic results in the last 2 semesters, including good English language skills.
The gala took place inside the Monopolis Stage and concluded this year’s edition of the programme. The event was attended by nearly 450 people – city authorities, universities, funders and, above all, the best students in Lodz. The winners of the BIO-GEN scientific scholarships were students of the Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Sciences at the Technical University of Łódź – Patrycja Rowińska and Karolina Murawska. The scholarship covers the entire academic year and will end with an offer of an extension in the form of an employment contract.
The aim of the scholarship programme is to motivate students to further their education and work, including promoting good academic performance. An important aspect is to stimulate a desire among young people to develop skills relevant to employers. BIO-GEN is a good example of a company operating in an innovative sector that is looking for candidates for its biotechnology laboratory in Lodz.
