VELA Semester Scholarship for International Students

Vote for our Finalists!

Thank you very much for the numerous and great applications for our semester scholarship. It was not easy for us to pick three essays for the final. Nevertheless, we believe that our three chosen ones deserve to be in the final selection for the scholarship. Why? It's best to let them explain it to you themselves.

Have a look at the final entries and vote for your favorite under until October 4th!

All other applicants have the opportunity to apply for our scholarship again for the summer semester 2021.
