GoEuro Study Abroad Scholarship

For students completing a study abroad program in Europe, traveling to new and exciting destinations is all part of the experience. However, figuring out how to get to smaller towns and cities with no major airport connections can be a complicated process. Which is why we are determined to help students find the best ways to get around!

GoEuro would like students to experience the best that Europe has to offer their own way, no matter what mode of transport they prefer. To allow students the chance to explore and travel the continent, GoEuro is offering this great European scholarship to financially assist international students (U.S. students are international to them) with their studies.

Entries for applications will be accepted until Tuesday, 31 January 2017. Applications received outside this time period will not be considered. Scholarship winners will be announced on Monday, 6 February 2017.

IS THERE A FUTURE FOR THE UK IN EUROPE?

WED | 30 SEP 15

238 HRCB

Two big questions loom over the United Kingdom: Will the UK leave the European Union? And what will happen to the UK’s own five hundred year old union in the British Isles? Looking across the continent, the question of a “Brexit” looms large, mixing into questions about the membership of other countries as well. At home, a UK referendum on continued EU membership will be shaped by the refugee crisis, Eurozone economic concerns, and domestic politics.

Sir Michael Leigh is senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund (GMF) of the United States in Washington, D.C. Since 2011, Leigh has led GMF’s project on Eastern Mediterranean energy, which focuses on the geopolitical implications of gas discoveries in the region. He has also written and lectured extensively on the future of the EU and the eurozone, enlargement and eastern partnership (particularly Ukraine), Turkey’s relations with the EU and their common neighborhood, as well as Europe’s response to political change in the Mediterranean and Middle East.
