European Fund, portail de bourses d'études The goal of the German association Initiative für transparente Studienförderung (ItS) - in English, the Initiative for Transparent Student Funding - is to make it easier for prospective students to understand and access EU financial aid programs to encourage international study.

For this purpose, ItS created the platform that gives high-school, college, and post-grad students a free way to find financial aid for their academic courses. For the first time in France, this website uses a correlation algorithm that shows only the grants, subventions, scholarships, and awards that really correspond with each student's individual profile.

These 12,000 financial aid programs cover a vast range of areas in which students might need help to continue their education – from daily living expenses, registration and housing fees to additional costs for semesters abroad, language classes, or budgets for scientific projects. The platform also offers various articles, especially on themes related to applying for scholarships and grants. This is why ArkeoTopia supports this initiative by sharing information about it.

The platform also caters to students who don't have a homogenous resume or don't fit into the classic academic paths. In this way it supports the new Be different! program. This scholarship is part of a series targeting students who don't fit into the classic definitions and who, until now, haven't received much help with their studies. It further hopes to encourage the creation of similar programs.
