According to ain.ua, more than 6000 students applied for the scholarship, but only 29 of them were qualified.

Ivonna Dumanyan from Ukraine is the CEO and the founder of BioMetrix startup that creates the gadget that can predict the possibility of trauma for the sportsman. It looks like a sensor that is attached to skin and evaluates the sportsman's activity to figure out the risks, and then notifies the user. Ivonna had the risks to receive ankle injury, and that inspired her to create such a gadget.

"A big thank you to the Thiel Foundation for this amazing opportunity and to each of the remarkable youth whom I look forward to calling my friends! Never stop trying to change the world!" the student wrote on her Facebook page.
