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

Borealis and the JKU Create the “MORE” Scholarship for Asylum Seekers who Meet University Entry Requirements

Asylum-seeking students 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.

Submit your application between June 24 and July 21, 2019! Click here for the application form.
