Scholarship of the Austrian Scholarship Foundation

This Foundation awards scholarships to citizens of those countries that suffered under the National Socialist regime, particularly through the recruiting of forced labour. The programme is, however, not only intended for people from the countries particularly affected by the recruitment of forced labour, but also for the descendants of forced labourers who live in other countries.
