The “Dream NEW” Scholarship


The “Dream NEW” Scholarship supports students who are open-minded, have a sense of adventure and are ready to realise their dreams. Altogether, 8 scholarships with a total value of 60,000 € will be awarded. Each scholarship facilitates a semester abroad at one of New Zealand’s eight universities. More details about the scholarship programme can be found here:

The program is part of a broad-based initiative to create scholarship programmes for students without an elite background. Over the last few years, 24 scholarship programmes with a value of 155,000 € have been created. It’s critical to make each and every programme a success, because it’s the only way to realise our goal of 1 million euros in awarded scholarship funds by 2017.


About the Initiative for Transparency in Educational Grants:
Our initiative wants to help students in financially challenging situations finance their studies. We educate through our informational work about scholarships (for instance, debunking the popular myths that they’re only for extremely talented and dedicated students) and the scholarship platform which we’ve created,, has already received numerous accolades. Quickly, simply and free of charge, students using the platform can find those scholarships which match their curriculum vitae. The matching process allows information in the user’s profile to be matched to a database of 12,000 scholarship programmes with a total value of 27 billion euros. The European Funding Guide was supported by the European Commission and every year the platform helps millions of students search for scholarships. More than 8,000 supporters throughout Europe are already aiding us in our work.
