ScholarshipPortal provides information on the funding opportunities for studying, working or performing research in countries all over the world. The portal aims to stimulate and help students worldwide to find and apply for appropriate scholarships to study in Asia, Australia, Europe (in countries like the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, France) and the United States. By doing this, ScholarshipPortal boosts worldwide visibility of and access to scholarship programmes and funding opportunities in Asia, Australia, Europe and the US.
ScholarshipPortal unifies the scattered information on all kinds of funding opportunities, such as grants, fellowships, awards, exchanges, and of course scholarships. Moreover, it presents scholarship information in a comprehensive, structured and transparent way, easily accessible by students coming from a variety of countries and academic backgrounds.
We consider international study experience invaluable to students´ development. The number one barrier to studying abroad are financial concerns or lack of funds. Through the creation of the ScholarshipPortal we try to overcome this barrier and inform students on the many opportunities that exist. On this mission, there´s still a lot of work to be done. We are working enthusiastically and welcome cooperation with students and universities.
ScholarshipPortal is an initiative by StudyPortals B.V. and the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA). The project receives seed funding from the European Commission, under the Lifelong Learning Erasmus programme.
The scholarship information is included and administered by individual scholarship providers and in some cases by StudyPortals. In addition, ScholarshipPortal has collaborations with several national agencies. In particular, ScholarshipPortal includes and spreads scholarship information from national scholarship search engines administered by Nuffic (Grantfinder.nl, Beursopener.nl), DAAD (Stipendiendatenbank Ausland, Scholarship database), ÖAD (Grants.at) and Fundación Universidad.es (Universidad.es).
