Scholarships and Training for Albanian Students
Our aim is to strengthen the educational elite in Albania and to ensure a new generation of well-trained specialists. Therefore, we provide scholarships for students in their final year of studies, during the stage of their labour market entry, and for their business start-ups. The goal is to give young Albanians an opportunity to develop occupational prospects in their home country.
In 2019, we are offering application trainings in different university cities in Albania and internship grants to state university students in the transition period between study and work.
We want to especially encourage students from smaller state universities in Albania to apply in this round.
In 2018, 51 graduates and master students received a scholarhsip for internships in companies, agencies and social institutions. Their internships were accompanied by seminars and coachings as well as personal coachings.
Furthermore 97 students took part in various application trainings that took place in six different university cities of Albania.
In 2017, 55 graduates and master students received a scholarhsip. Their internships were accompanied by seminars and coachings as well as personal coachings. In cooperation with the DIHA, the scholarhsip holders attended an internship day.
