Eligible university students should be motivated, show demonstrable promise, have a general average mark of at least 75% after a minimum of two years of successful university studies and be in need of financial assistance.

The Foundation gives priority to:

  • students whose studies have a direct link with the advancement and the improvement of living standards of people in their own country or who are likely to make a contribution to a more tolerant world
  • students from the Mediterranean basin who wish to use their knowledge in the service of their own country or of other developing countries.

The Foundation focuses its support on university students who wish to obtain a bachelor’s or master’s degree, but not a doctorate.

University students who are eligible for scholarships will be recommended either by a university approved by the Foundation Board, or by a Board Member.
