The Kurdistan Regional Government Representation in Austria is very pleased to announce a special scholarship program, offered by the European Forum Alpbach (EFA), the leading platform for academic exchange of ideas in Austria, for students from the Kurdistan Region.
The scholarship program’s purpose is to allow motivated university students from the Kurdistan Region to participate at the European Forum Alpbach 2016. More specifically, EFA will offer up to 9 scholarships for 2016, which include participation, accommodation and daily allowances for the entire duration of the Forum taking place from August 17th – September 2nd 2016 on the topic “New Enlightenment”. The call for applications will open at the beginning of February and close on March 31st 2016, while the European Forum Alpbach itself will select scholarship holders in April 2016 and notify them about the results.
We are convinced that this offer is an excellent chance to enable talented, young people to participate in a unique environment of open and critical debate. Moreover, in difficult times like the present, young people in Kurdistan-Iraq could particularly profit from this opportunity.
