Aim of the program
In order to enlarge the workflow and BPM community, STATUM launches a contest, with the aim that more people become closer with this technology by learning and using the product, Apia.
The proposal is simple: after a concise briefing, students will be given a compulsory paper that they should hand in in two weeks.
In order to properly fulfill the task, students can do a 100% online training, through e-Learning website, www.statum.org, which has open public courses on BPMS. Also, they should visit STATUM’S knowledge base (www.statum.info) and download handbooks, presentations, videos, and knowledge files that will help them to do the task as good as possible.
The contest will make participants work independently, will help them to get in touch with a new technology and will make them try harder to hand in and defend a paper which will be assessed by engineers with over 10 years of experience in BPM and workflow technology.
The first prize will be a 50% grant for the whole semester to pay career studies for the student, together with the possibility to become part of STATUM. The second and third prize will be a 30% and 20% grant, and the possibility to join STATUM as well. Also, paid internships are offered to those participants that obtain special distinctions from the jury.
1. The winner will obtain a 50% partial scholarship for a whole semester to pay career studies that he/she is currently studying.
2. The second student will obtain a 30% partial scholarship for a whole semester to pay career studies that he/she is currently studying
3. The third student will obtain a 20% partial scholarship for a whole semester to pay career studies that he/she is currently studying
4. Students with special awards from the jury will be able to have paid internships in STATUM
The awarding of the total number of partial scholarships abovementioned is subject to the submission of at least 45 compulsory papers. This means that the award of the 50% scholarship is subject to the submission of at least 15 compulsory papers. The award of the 30% scholarship is subject to the submission of at least 30 compulsory papers and the award of the 20% scholarship is subject to the submission of at least 45 compulsory papers. In any case, STATUM reserves the right not to award the scholarships or to void the first, second or third prize, if the compulsory papers do not fulfill the expectations established on the terms, without implying any liability whatsoever. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, if the number of compulsory papers does not reach the minimum necessary for the award of the scholarships already mentioned, STATUM may award the best papers with other prizes.
Participants will be evaluated by a jury that will be composed by STATUM engineers, that will take into account:

All participants should:
• be students of the Faculty of Engineering of the participant University
