Borealis-More Scholarship

Borealis AG and JKU Linz create "MORE": Financial support for those who have a refugee background

The Borealis-MORE Scholarship is aimed at students with a refugee background who have been admitted to study at JKU. The aim of the scholarship program is to bridge the period in studies for students with a refugee background where they are excluded from other financial support. At the beginning of the semester a Learning Agreement is signed between the scholarship recipient and university in which students agree to complete a designated amount of academic work.

The next call for applications is open until July 30, 2021.
