In August 2017 DreamStudies founded a scholarship for students who want to study abroad. Most scholarships are limited to a few schools or countries. However, our scholarship is open to all universities, colleges and language schools all over the world.

We have handed out scholarships of 1000-1700 Euro per year since 2018. Here you can find our latest scholarship winners:

Scholarships for 5000 Euro

Previously our scholarship amount has been at least 1000 Euro/year. From the application period opening in February 2022 we will increase the scholarship amount to 5000 Euro (or USD for schools in the US) divided on four different scholarships:

  • The Language Course Scholarship 1000 Euro: you can get this scholarship for language courses at selected language schools around the world.
  • The Study Abroad Scholarship 1000 Euro: you can get this scholarship to study abroad for 1-2 semesters at selected colleges & universities abroad.
  • The Degree Scholarship 2000 Euro: you can get this scholarship to take an Associate, Bachelor, or Master's Degree at selected colleges and universities abroad.
  • The Asia Scholarship 1000 Euro: this is a scholarship for programs taken at our partner schools in Japan, Korea and the rest of Asia. It can be a language course, a degree program, or study abroad semesters.

You do not need to choose which scholarship you apply for. Fill out one scholarship application and we will automatically consider you for the scholarship that matches the school and program you have chosen (for example the Asia Scholarship and the Language Cours Scholarship if you apply for a Language course in Korea). The scholarship is available for seleted schools abroad. On the application page, you can see which schools you can apply for.

The scholarships are handed out once per year. The scholarships can be split between several students. Please note that this scholarship will not be enough to support you on long-term studies. You will still need other funding as well.

Who can apply?

Before 2021 it was possible to apply for this scholarship for studies abroad at all colleges, universities, and language schools abroad. However, we started to receive too many applications where many had incorrect data. So from 2021, we will limit the number of schools that we give the scholarship for to better be able to validate the received applications.

You can get the scholarship for full-time studies starting in 2024 (or January 2025) at one of the selected schools on the application page (you cannot get it for programs that started in 2023 or earlier). If you want to start later, you should wait and apply for a scholarship in the coming years instead. Anyone can apply regardless of age, nationality, and background.

You do not need to be accepted by a school abroad when you apply for the scholarship, but if you receive the scholarship, it is on to the condition that you will study at the school and program which you mention in your scholarship application. We will put you in touch with the school you apply the scholarship for so they can give you more information. Please note that you can only get the scholarship if you apply directly to the school chosen above with assistance from DreamStudies. Students applying with the help of third-party agencies or exchange programs organized by their home university will be disqualified from this scholarship.

Application deadline and the scholarship winner

The application deadline is 15 December each year. DreamStudies’ Board of Directors then decides which student will be awarded the scholarship. His or her name is made public at the end of January. For more details see the terms and conditions on the application page.
