Scholarships

A sound educational foundation results in good prospects in the job market. Similarly, continuing education helps to keep one's prospects intact and serves as a driver of personal development. The only problem is: education costs money. Not everyone can fall back on a wealthy family, personal savings or a part-time job. When searching for other sources of financing, you will soon discover the scholarship system, a complex web of 26 public and dozens of private organisations which offer a helping hand to people pursuing professional or personal development. A request for a scholarship or educational grant involves an extensive evaluation procedure that demands considerable effort on the part of the applicant and is only successful if some very specific criteria are met. First condition: educational grants are approved only when the financial means of the applicant, the applicant’s parents or other legal guardians are insufficient.
