About The One World Scholarship (OWS)

 

The One-World Scholarship Programme is directed at students from developing countries at universities in Salzburg or Tyrol (click here for a list). It is meant to contribute to the peaceful coexistence of people from different countries of origin by enhancing equal opportunities, dialogue, intercultural know-how and partnership.

 

AIM OF THE PROGRAMME

 

The One World Scholarship Programme is meant to support students from Africa, Asia and Latin America who are interested in development issues and who have come to Austria on their own initiative in order to complete their education. With their decision to study abroad, the students have demonstrated a high degree of assertiveness, creativity and mobility.

 

During their studies in Austria they acquire skills and competencies which can contribute to the economic, social, ecological and cultural development in their countries or regions of origin. As highly skilled professionals and leaders they can induce a positive change.

 

Many alumni initiate their own development projects, others work for international organisations or teach at universities in their countries of origin; thus, contributing to a valuable transfer of knowledge. This kind of capacity building is sustainable and generates multiplying effects. Finally, alumni help building bridges between Austria and their home countries.

REQUIREMENTS FOR A SUCCESFUL APPLICATION:

 

* Financial need

 

We consider own income, savings, other means of support, profession and income of parents in order to select students who would hardly be able to successfully finish their studies without financial support.

 

* Evidence of good progress in studies

 

Good study progress documented by transcript of records of current and past studies. In programmes without entry exams, students who have already completed at least one semester at an Austrian university have a distinctive advantage.

 

* Interest in development and according specialisation in studies

 

Prospective awardees are expected to show a strong interest in development related issues, which is supposed to be reflected in the choice of study fields, prior work experience, voluntary activities etc.

 

Possible fields of specialisation are poverty reduction, social justice, global migrations, gender equality, climate change, sustainable use of resources, food security, renewable energies, environmental protection, sustainable tourism, urbanisation, health, human rights, democratisation, good governance, fighting corruption, conflict prevention and resolution, international relations, intercultural dialogue. This list should provide applicants with an idea of relevant topics, it is, however, not exclusive.

 

The scholarship will contribute to exercise the right to education for those critical and intellectual young people who encounter poor conditions in their home countries. These aspects still apply more strongly to women. Regarding applications from equally qualified individuals, priority is given to female students.
