Borealis-More-Grant

The 2020/2021 Borealis MORE Scholarship returns to the JKU!

Borealis and the JKU create “MORE”: Scholarship for refugees who meet university entrance requirements

Back during Winter Semester 2017, students who had been granted asylum had an opportunity to start a degree program of their choice with the help of the Borealis MORE Scholarship. In return, students signed a so-called "Learning Agreement", agreeing to maintain a certain academic threshold.

The Borealis MORE Scholarship has proven successful in the past and has been approved to continue.

The application period for the 2019/2020 academic year is closed.

If you have any questions about the upcoming application period, please send an e-mail to: borealis-more-stipendium@jku.at
