Scholarships can be a good way for students to fund their studies. But scholarships can be so much more. Depending on which foundation or organisation for the promotion of young talent sponsors the scholarship, they can offer additional support such as language courses, lump sums to cover study costs, and conferences. Above all, the contacts and networks they provide can be of lasting benefit long after your time at university.
Scholarships to fund your studies
Scholarships are not only reserved for gifted students. Many scholarship providers also aim to assist exceptionally committed young people or particular target groups that reflect their own thematic focus. The best-known scholarship providers are foundations as well as dedicated organisations for the promotion of young talent.
