The Borealis MORE "Get Started" Scholarship for 2019/2020 is back at the JKU!

Borealis and the JKU create the “MORE” Scholarship for asylum seekers who meet university entrance requirements

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

The BoMo Scholarship has proven successful and has been approved for the 2019/2020 academic year.

Applications for the BoMo Scholarship are now being accepted for the 2019/2020 academic year.

The application deadline for the 2019/2020 academic year has expired.
