Well done also to those of you who have been chosen as "reserve" candidates - your applications were also excellent, and maybe you will be lucky!
Fun fact: last year, one of the Lisbon participants came from the "reserve" - and was one of the top students in the end!
As for the rest inspiring young talents who applied and didn't make it this time: with only 28 spots available, it was a particularly difficult choice. We wish to underline that this outcome does not reflect the quality of your application or the value of your personal or professional achievements. We trust that you have a lot to bring to the digital revolution, to the quest for equality, and to our shared fight for a more diverse and inclusive tech world.
Another fun fact: at least three Summer Schoool applicants who didn't make it last time are among the selected candidates this time. So stay with us to not miss future opportunities coming up - this does not end here!
Lastly, a big THANK YOU to all the applicants who took the time to submit their candidacies for this selection process. It was really beautiful to see the power of female talent coming together for a fairer digital revolution.
Together we will change the world for the best.
