Intelliware Champions Local Students through STEM Scholarship at Parkdale Collegiate

July 6th, 2021 in  Blog, Community

Intelliware would like to congratulate Parkdale Collegiate students Erazmo Popovic and Matthew Ye as the 2021 recipients of the Intelliware Scholarship for Leadership and Innovation.

The Intelliware Scholarship for Leadership and Innovation was created in 2012 to support and recognize Parkdale Collegiate students who plan to pursue post-secondary studies in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The scholarship was founded as a way to promote educational pursuits that will help support local students interested in sciences, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.  As well, the Intelliware Scholarship aims to give back to the local Parkdale community as a whole.

“Intelliware has many initiatives that encourage students to learn more about the possibilities in the tech industry. This scholarship remains one of our favourites as it contributes to the Parkdale community where our roots are and invests in the education of our students and the advancement of technology and innovation.” explains Bruno Schmidt, SVP, Technology at Intelliware.

Erazmo and Matthew have been selected from their graduating class at Parkdale based on their academic achievements, leadership abilities and outstanding dedication to teamwork. Both have also been involved in extracurricular school activities and shown a dedication to innovation.  Erazmo and Matthew are heading off to university to study engineering in the fall.

This is the ninth year that Intelliware has made a commitment to Parkdale Collegiate Institute in hopes of widening the window of opportunity for bright, young minds in our local community. Intelliware is proud of its ongoing support of local students who will be shaping the future of our community and the technology industry. Intelliware is thrilled that we’ve been able to continue our support of Parkdale Collegiate students during this time of COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions and widespread school closures.
