Emagining the possibilities
A Work Integrated Learning Scholarship, which not only provides a student with much need funds for studying and living but also an opportunity to get in and practice what they have been preached provides the best of both worlds and it’s an option in supporting students that Emagine International has found works for them.
Emagine International is a specialist provider of real-time contextual customer marketing software and managed services, and offers two UOW students a $5000, one-year WIL scholarship each year. The company has expanded its support this year because it’s finding that students are bringing a lot more than enthusiasm to the business.
Software is a people business, and that can be something that is overlooked by IT professionals. Soft skills such as communication are an essential complement to technical knowledge and expertise. Great people listen to customers and align themselves with the customer’s needs,” said Emagine CEO and founder Dave Peters. “Without this, they cannot create great solutions. That has always been one of Emagine’s strengths and we’re keen to instil the value of the approach in the next generation, as well as harvesting some great talent for our continued expansion of course.
You can multiply your contribution and the impact of your support by requesting a matching gift from your employer. Many organisations match employee gifts to University of Wollongong scholarships and research projects. You can ask your human resources department to establish a gift-matching policy with UOW on behalf of employees.
Please contact us to find out if your employer is among those who participate in this University's matching gift program.
