Europe Scholarship Würzburg

With the aim of fostering the European idea of student exchange, the University of Würzburg, together with the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg, and the University of Music Würzburg are offering Europe Scholarships to students of European Union countries.

The scholarship is sponsored by local companies and carries the value of up to 7,000 EURO for two semester of study abroad at one of the three universities of Würzburg.
Selected scholars should represent their home town as ambassadors of Europe, participate in local events and come up with their own ideas for enhancing the exchange of European Culture and Thoughts. Through this program, the European idea is enriched in many ways. By exchanging students who are enthusiastic about Europe and who can interact professionally and culturally, we like to promote a better understanding among Europeans and the growing together of Europe as a whole.
