Scholarship for experts of the future

+++ Application phase completed +++

Industry 4.0 is changing our entire lives and relocating the centre of our lives. Our focus is increasingly shifting to digitization. You may consider this good or bad, but the fact is that this development can no longer be stopped. It is therefore a good idea to look at digitization and answer the question of how it affects the personal sphere.

People with vision know that. They have the motivation and the commitment to help shape this transformation. For this reason, they devote part of their studies/training quite naturally to the subject of digitization. This makes them experts of the future.

Are you an expert of the future?

Your special knowledge and skills make you a unique personality. You are talented, highly motivated and have already envisaged the direction your life should take. You would like to make a positive contribution to future development with your studies or training.

ReviewInstitute would like to express its admiration and support you in achieving your goal.

There is no industry anymore that does not deal with the topic of digitization. Mechanical engineering is just as affected as medicine, transportation or neurobiology. Not even humanistic subjects such as psychology and pedagogy, not even the humanities such as linguistics, literature or philosophy can escape this phenomenon, which literally moves the world. Cultural studies is focusing more and more on the changes associated with globalization, and even art studies has expanded its curriculum to include “Digital Art History”.

And as the extraordinary, talented person you are, you carry this development with you!

Apply!

Behind our online platform ReviewInstitute is an international team of 70 permanent and numerous freelancers. Every single team member has something in common with you: they are living digitization!
