What's in it for you

We ask all scholarship students to do a Technology Ambassador project within their scholarship period. This means sharing your enthusiasm about technology and science with a target group of your choice, for example by giving guest lectures at highschools, posting youtube videos on science subjects, or doing a technology project with underprivileged kids.
Maarten, ASML Technology Scholarship participant
The ASML Technology Scholarship has been extremely valuable to me. I’ve learned a lot about ASML and what it’s like to work in a company, but also about what job opportunities are available for me as a mechanical engineer. In terms of personal development, I’ve really benefited from the training sessions, the mentorship, and I feel like I’ve also developed my soft skills quite a bit.
