Grants and funding opportunities
Things to keep in mind
Students are very strongly advised to start looking for funding options once they have decided to consider conducting research abroad. Finding funding takes time and effort. Students should keep account with the application deadline for the EuroScholars Progam and also for the specific funding providers.
On this website, we are only able to present limited information about scholarships and funding. There may be other possibilities available in your home country which are not listed here or via the grantfinders. To explore other opportunities, you could also consider contacting e.g.
- your home institution
- your country's Embassy abroad
- your local Ministry of Education
EuroScholars Grants Fall 2020
- The EuroScholars Consortium awards a limited number of grants of € 2500 per semester to help lower-income students and students with disabilities in line with the diversity policy of the European Consortium of EuroScholars.
- The EuroScholars Grants are counted towards the payment of the EuroScholars Program Fee. (students will receive an invoice for the remaining amount)
- Students participating in more than one semester will only be eligible to receive the grant once.
- Only full applications will be considered.
In order to be considered for a grant, students must have their full EuroScholars program application and EuroScholars Grant application submitted to ISA by the application deadline. Students will be able to submit their grant application materials to the ISA Student Portal along with their application materials.
Grant Application Requirements:
Financial Award Letter
Students must submit a financial award letter from their home institution’s financial aid office. The financial award letter must include information on any funding the student is already receiving towards their program cost. Financial need will be a strong factor in determining the awards, but students will not be discounted if they receive no aid.
Statement of Impact
Students must submit a statement in which they discuss how this grant will contribute to their ability to participate in EuroScholars. Any special circumstances, challenges, or other considerations applicants wish to convey should be included. Applicants may also choose to discuss their motivation for applying for a EuroScholars placement. This narrative must not exceed 400 words.
Students’ faculty references from the EuroScholars application will be submitted with the scholarship materials and taken into consideration during the review process.
