Borealis-More-Grant

The Borealis MORE Scholarship for 2020/2021 is back at the JKU!

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

With the help of the Borealis MORE scholarship, back in Winter Semester 2017, students who had been granted asylum had an opportunity to start a degree program of their choice. 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 to continue.

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