About

We work hard to create a better connected Europe at GoEuro. Our mission is to make travel easy by improving access to all towns and cities across the continent, whether it be by train, bus, or plane.

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 with their studies.

For three lucky international students, their European experience will be one to remember. To help them get the most out of their program by making it easier for them to travel and see as much of the continent as possible, GoEuro will be granting three individual scholarships up to €2,000.

The three individual scholarships that will be awarded are:

  • 1st place: €2000
  • 2nd place: €1500
  • 3rd place: €500
