TCS and Queen Mary University of London Partner to Offer Bursary to Computer Science Students in UK

The TCS Digital Explorers Bursary will offer 50 percent of tuition fee waiver to up to 20 undergraduate students from low income families

TCS has announced a partnership with Queen Mary University of London to offer a bursary for students looking to study computer science. The TCS Digital Explorers Bursary will provide financial assistance to up to 20 undergraduate students from low-income families. At least 50 percent of the recipients will be women, to help address the underrepresentation of women in the digital and IT sector in the UK.

Amit Kapur, country head, Tata Consultancy Services, UK & Ireland, said: “For the last many years, TCS has been working with schools and colleges to get young people cited about STEM education and careers, as a means of attracting talent to these sectors in the UK. We are extremely proud of our new TCS Digital Explorers bursary as a further investment into the future leaders of our industry.”

The bursary will cover half the cost of the annual tuition fee for each student for the first year of their three-year degree programme. This initiative is part of the company’s ongoing investment in STEM education and the IT leaders of the future. The TCS Digital Explorers bursary will be offered to students starting this academic year in September/October and applications open in September.

Professor Simon Lucas, Head of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London, said: “As a leading university in the UK we believe strongly in the power of higher education in paving the way for the leaders of the future; the TCS bursary provides an opportunity to those who otherwise may not be able to pursue an undergraduate degree. The bursary builds on our successful partnership with TCS that has developed over the last two years. In that time, TCS has helped us with supporting apprenticeship learners, building business board representation and providing guest speakers.”
