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.
