Studying Abroad Does Not Have to Cost Anything


EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    - New European Website Makes EUR 16 Billion of Scholarship Funds

Searchable


    The newly launched website ScholarshipPortal.eu (

http://www.scholarshipportal.eu) has compiled structured and searchable

information on scholarships and grants for studying in Europe. The site 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 (http://www.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 (http://www.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.
