The scholarship is quite generous, providing a monthly subsistence allowance to cover living costs, medical insurance, and a materials allowance. Additionally, it covers the tuition fee at the student’s entrance university, making it easier for students to focus on their studies without financial worries.

A Background

The Arqus Talent Scholarship Fund is not just about financial support; it’s about creating a vibrant, international community of scholars. The fund will award a minimum of 8 scholarships, prioritizing students with fewer opportunities, including refugees and asylum seekers. It’s a commitment to inclusivity and excellence, ensuring that a wide array of voices and perspectives are represented in the Arqus academic community.

This scholarship is particularly special because it emphasizes mobility and cross-cultural exchange. Recipients will have the opportunity to study at two different Arqus universities, gaining a rich, international experience that is both academically and personally rewarding. The selection results will be published on the Arqus website at the end of July 2024, marking the beginning of an exciting educational journey for successful applicants.
