The number of students applying for the Digital Innovation Scholarship has increased each year since our launch 3 years ago. The most recent scholarship season (2011) included a record breaking 247 applicants. Students come from all over Kosovo and study at a range of universities. The universities with most winners so far are: AUK 38, UP 18, UBT 6, KSMI 2, and Universum 1. On the other side, towns being represented with the most innovative visionaries are: Prishtina 35, Gjakova 12, Peja 7, Gjilan 5, Mitrovica 3.

Ipko Foundation is dedicated in supporting students that exhibit excellence in their ideas on how to improve Kosovo through digital innovation. Winners benefit not just from the scholarship but the opportunities offered by the program which have helped students meet current business leaders, participate in school discussions, and travel Kosovo while promoting ideas that empower students and innovators. We challenge all students to take their original ideas through to its fulfillment. Ideas which can improve their neighborhoods, towns, and in some cases — even the country itself.
