The recipient of the November 2012 Student Grant is Christina Lyhne from Denmark.

My name is Christina Lyhne, and I’m a student part-time at an animal hospital and part-time at school. In the spring of 2013 we are having an exchange program with students of the same education in Florida, USA. We are going to go live there for 2 weeks and go to school with them, and then they are coming to visit us in Denmark for 2 weeks and go to work with us. I’m so happy Student Grants financially helps me make this happen. It’s a huge help! Thank you… :-)


The receiving student of the OCTOBER 2012 Student Grant is Sarah Mastel from The United States.

Thanks to this grant I will be able to afford airfare and travel insurance for my semester in Scotland this spring. I have never had the opportunity to leave the US; I can count on one hand the number of states I have been in, and I desperately wish to go experience more of the world. I hope to gain a deeper understanding of myself and my place in the world as well as a broader perspective on global issues—a new angle from which to look at things, if you will. Both of these things are, I think, vital to higher education, and this experience will help me to develop them in a way I could not at home. I am deeply appreciative of the student grant program—thank you

Congratulations, Sarah! Best of luck with your semester in Scotland!

The receiving student of the July 2012 Student Grant is Astrisia Artanti from Indonesia.

The Student Grant program support me to book my travel ticket from Indonesia to Netherlands which is quite costly. This grant, unlike many other, support student to fulfill their own needs related with their education. Like practice makes you perfect, I give my best with apply more than once for this grant, even for several periods of grant. And it works! I got the June Grant because I kept trying and believing that this grant will comes true :)



I’m starting off my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at Amsterdam University (Netherlands) in September. I hope to succeed in this program and to continue my training in upcoming fields at a PhD level. Cognitive science is a young and developing field and will present, in the near future, exciting and important discoveries.

For a young psychologist from Santiago, Chile being able to study abroad in a cutting edge field is an opportunity of a lifetime and any financial support is highly appreciated.

For me, Student Grants represents the first step on the path to academic and scientific development. The competition for scholarships has become increasingly difficult each year with more new and promising students that are branching out into different fields and disciplines; Student Grants, unlike many other scholarships, has maintained support for different students even in a difficult world economic climate.

Thank you Student Grants.

“As an Iranian student, studying in Finland, and due to my interest in German, I wished to experience living and studying in a German speaking country. There was a great opportunity there: the Erasmus Exchange program which I applied for. But I was worried about my expenses. I found the chance to get some financial help through The Student Grants program. Now I feel so lucky that I actually got the grant – and even as the first ever student getting a Student Grant! Now I can go to Germany and study confidently and without worrying. Awesome, huh?

Thanks a lot Students Grants :) ” - Aida
