1000 scholarships for Prometheus IT courses in partnership with WNISEF: free training in programs created together with GlobalLogic, Ciklum, and the top industry experts

Prometheus, Ukraine’s largest educational platform, offers scholarships for paid IT courses created in partnership with GlobalLogic, Ciklum, and top industry experts. The Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) is generously providing 1,000 scholarships to make the training free of charge.

“In the span of nearly two years the war in Ukraine caused over 5 million Ukrainians to lose their jobs. Learning a new profession is now essential for many individuals, being a crucial component in the country’s economic stability. This is the second time the Western NIS Enterprise Fund offers scholarships for Ukrainians affected by the war to master IT professions, ensuring they will find excellent job opportunities and provide for themselves and their families. We believe this is an important long-term investment in the development of human capital in Ukraine – something that the Russians will not be able to destroy,” noted Iryna Ozymok, WNISEF Local Economic Development Program Manager.

1000 Ukrainians will have the opportunity to study at paid IT programs free of charge. The scholarships are granted only to citizens who have been affected by the war in Ukraine.
