The Helmut Veith Stipend is dedicated to the memory of an outstanding computer scientist who worked in the fields of logic in computer science, computer-aided verification, software engineering, and computer security. Helmut Veith, who sadly passed away in March 2016, was a strong advocate and mentor for women in computer science.
In tribute to Helmut Veith efforts, a stipend for outstanding female students in computer science was established with the support of TU Wien, the Wolfgang Pauli Institute, and generous donations of friends and colleagues of Prof. Veith. Students who are awarded a scholarship receive EUR 6000 annually (paid in installments), and tuition fees are waived.
The VCLA invites applications for the Helmut Veith Stipend from motivated and outstanding female master’s students who plan to pursue one of the programs in Computer Science at TU Wien taught in English.
