In many countries, young people have limited access to high-quality university education, few opportunities for a semester abroad, few chances to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice. Insufficient quality of education causes lack of democracy, weak socio-economic situation and unequal society.
Since 2000 COPERNICUS BERLIN has been working for equal educational opportunities to support the development of democracy, economic growth and progressive civil society. Thus, young people are supported and receive a unique experience which they can later implement in their home countries.
From which countries did we have scholarship holders?
