What makes us special? Structure and content!
Most of the scholarship programs that exist today grant scholarships mainly according to the student’s socioeconomic status. Atidna also gives priority to the student’s skills and abilities.
Atidna’s scholarship program accompanies the student throughout the degree, holds seminars in which scholars are awarded trainings, soft skills and enrichment content. After graduation, the scholars join the Atidna’s community and many possibilities to integrate into the continuation plans of the organization are opened to them.
