The people behind ApplicAid

We support the next generation of talent!

One Team.

One Vision.

The ApplicAid team has many years of experience in every area of the scholarship world, whether as an applicant, scholarship holder, alumni or even a juror!

Together we are scholarship holders in more than 40 programs, both national and international.

Diversity and heterogeneity play a major role for us, which is reflected, for example, in the fact that we speak over 13 different languages.

Almost everyone in our team also has an educationally disadvantaged background themselves (first-gen students, refugees, migrant background, etc.), which is why we are very familiar with the needs, problems and wishes of our target group.

If you too would like to become part of the ApplicAid family, subscribe to our newsletter and follow our social media channels so that you'll always be up to date when we're looking for new members!
