Looking for scholarship? Here’s where to find it

Site helps students to fund their ambition to study in Europe

students-university-class.png10 November 2010. A newly launched website has compiled structured and searchable information on scholarships and grants for studying in Europe. The ScholarshipPortal.eu (http://www.scholarshipportal.eu ) will help students to fund their ambition to study abroad.

How would a student hear about an excellence scholarship to study law in Berlin, or a grant to go to the University of Edinburgh? And where does a Brazilian management student find out about a special scholarship to study in France? Many students are not aware of their opportunities or do not know where to look. The website ScholarshipPortal.eu provides the answer.

ScholarshipPortal.eu is the new platform where students can find scholarships or grants offered for studying in Europe. Students can find funds to finance their study abroad with a search tailored to their personal background and interests. Funded by the European Commission and just recently launched, the database already contains over 800 scholarships.

The technology and concept are based on the popular study choice website MastersPortal.eu , where more than one million students find and compare Master’s courses across Europe every month. Just like MastersPortal, the new scholarship website gives transparency to the haystack of European opportunities: there is an estimated EUR 15.6 billion of scholarship funds available in Europe every year, yet financial constraints are the primary reason not to study abroad. ScholarshipPortal.eu bridges the gap.

The website is developed by the European study choice platform StudyPortals. The comprehensive international overview is a result of the cooperation with many national institutes. Scholarships from several databases are united into the single European resource, helping students around the world in fulfilling their study ambitions.
