TROOPERS for Students

TROOPERS22 Student Motivational Letter

This year, we will continue with our tradition for current Highschool, Bachelor and Master degree students, where you have to submit a Motivational Letter.

What needs to be included in your motivational letter

  • Tell us about yourself!
  • Why are you interested in IT-Security?
  • Why do you want to come to TROOPERS?
  • What will you contribute to TROOPERS as an attendee?

A little of feedback on the letters from the previous years. The people who received tickets clearly spent much time thinking about their answers to our questions. They did not give generic answers such as "IT is cool yo", but really gave us insight into themselves and their vision for their future within the IT Security community.

TROOPERS22 Student tickets include free entry to our Main TROOPERS conference on Wednesday and Thursday, and our Roundtable discussions on Friday. While we do not provide travel assistance, please refer to our travel page for information regarding where to stay and how to get here. If you have questions or need assistance you can always write us at

Student tickets include:

Main Conference

There will be one round for TR22 Student Motivational Letters. The process opens on February 20, 2022 and closes on May 01, 2022. All students will be notified regarding decisions by May 29, 2022.

Please also include proof of your current Highschool's, Bachelor’s or Master's degree status*. This could be a valid student ID or an official letter from your university. Motivational letters that do not include proof of active student status will not be considered.

*As Ph.D. students are employed by their university, we cannot accept Ph.D. application for free tickets. Ph.D. students can however book with our Academic rate.

By the way, ERNW and ERNW Research are the companies behind this awesome conference, and we are hiring! Employees get to help out and attend TROOPERS for free.

We look forward to seeing you at TROOPERS22!
