Unicamp Computing Institute launches donation campaign to support students’ stay at the university

Donations from companies and individuals can open doors for talented young people in the field of technology and computing

Unicamp's Computing Institute, through the Friends of IC initiative, is launching the “Invest in tomorrow, change lives today” campaign on its digital channels, aiming to raise funds for its scholarship program that reduces school dropouts resulting from socioeconomic difficulties.

Education, combined with technology, can transform lives and entire communities. However, many talented young people face financial barriers that prevent them from accessing quality educational opportunities. The Institute of Computing's scholarship program wants to change this reality, opening doors for brilliant students who want to build promising careers in technology and computing.

Throughout its editions, large companies have already contributed to the maintenance of the project, such as iFood, QuintoAndar, CI&T, among others. The director of the Unicamp Computing Institute, Prof. Leandro Villas thanks you for your participation and reiterates the importance of the project:

“We sincerely hope to have everyone’s support so that this successful program can continue to exist and support our students in carrying out cutting-edge and impactful research. Thank you all for valuing this Institute that we love so much, Unicamp and Science.”
