What students say

When I got the KAL scholarship, I couldn’t believe it. It really helped me with my financial situation, but the main benefit of it was that it really motivated me in school and in my life in general. The best thing is that it repeats every single year. So thank you, I am very grateful for it. The visit to KAL was fun and interesting. I met lots of nice people from your company. When I first heard about you I wasn’t sure what KAL did, but the presentation clarified everything and showed us interesting products you are developing.

For me, the KAL scholarship is mostly a motivating factor - it makes you try harder and do a better job while preparing for the exams. On my recent visit to KAL’s company headquarters, I learnt that KAL is a very dynamic and growing company with a unique blend of IT and finance sectors, both of which interest me a great deal.

Informatics Football (sponsored by KAL) has been a prominent part of my life since I joined in my first year of university. Initially taking part in 11-a-side and 5-a-side games, Later, I was given a role within managteam that has just won the intra-mural league. More recently I have been given captaincy in the Futsal team, an exciting new prospect for the Infos where we get to play beyond a University-context and into a city-wide league.
