"This scholarship is a life defining moment for me. I have no words to express my happiness on winning the Erasmus+ scholarship. My dream has come true!" said a delighted Bethlehem Solomon, one of the Ethiopian students, when she was granted with this opportunity.
European Union has awarded full Masters scholarship for 60 Ethiopian students for the academic year of 2019-2020 through the EU’s flagship education initiative, Erasmus Mundus/Erasmus+ European Scholarship Programme. The students will spend 2 years in prestigious Universities in 12 European countries to pursue their Master Degrees in various fields. Each beneficiary student will attend a master degree to be awarded by a consortium of universities from at least two EU Member States.
On this first International Day commemorating the victims of acts of violence based on religion or belief, we pay tribute to all those around the world who lost their lives and suffered attacks because of their religion or belief. Persecution as a response to religious belief or affiliation, or lack thereof, is a violation of international law and requires joint work to combat it.
