What is Student Project Sponsorship?
This is an opportunity for undergraduate students from Northern Europe to have an extra boost for their projects to be the best they can be. NI will select 10 individual or team projects to sponsor and will offer several benefits that can take a project from good to award-winning.
NI is offering sponsorship packages to students in 2016/17 and those selected will be announced in November 2016. As well as cash, NI will provide a donation of NI equipment to enable students to instrument or automate systems. Training and NI Engineers will be made available to ensure success in using NI technologies.
