NEED-BASED SCHOLARSHIP 

Completing a degree in a foreign country is a significant investment but we believe financing should not be a reason not to attend a high-quality program once a candidate has found the right program for them. This scholarship is intended to allow candidates who have limited financial resources to enroll in the Master or Bachelor program (savings, bank loans…)
