Scholarships for Minorities

These scholarships aim to support and promote students belonging to various minorities and help them find secure and fulfilling places in different areas of society.

Regardless if they are based on religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, race, health or wealth, minorities must be given equal opportunities to develop and express themselves, as well as helped to avoid any type of discrimination.

These programs, combining financial support with ongoing personal assistance, are ideally fine-tuned for accomplishing these goals and, thus, for contributing to the emergence of a truly tolerant and democratic multicultural society.
