The European Humanities University (EHU) is proud to announce a competition for the first EHU Alumni Scholarship. The scholarship was initiated to support current active undergraduate students and foster closer links between EHU students and alumni. The scholarship encourages social engagement and will be awarded to those students who demonstrate a high level of academic achievement as well as involvement in extracurricular activities.
“We are very pleased that the scholarship was made possible by EHU alumni in Belarus and abroad. EHU is the only Belarusian university that is developing relations with its alumni, and this is a great example of how alumni can support current students in their path to obtaining education in a free environment,” said Andrei Khrapavitski, who is alumni relations coordinator at EHU (BA Political Science and European Studies, 2010).
The scholarship is funded by voluntary donations from EHU alumni. A scholarship of 3217.46 Litas (nearly 1,000 EUR) will be awarded to one candidate this academic year.
