For the 20th anniversary of ELSA in 2001 ELS offered the first time ELS scholarships. ELS offered 4 students to participate in the International Council Meeting of ELSA and covered their participation fee.
Because of the success of this grant, the ELS scholarships were established as a permanent programme and in the meantime the administrator of the programme, ELSA Legend Pierangelo Graziani, was able to inform almost 100 students, that ELS supports them and covers their costs.
The programme is not only a success for the individual scholar, but also for ELSA as a students association as well. You can find former ELS scholars among the trainers of the International Trainers Pool of ELSA, in Organising Committees (OC) of ELSA events – among them a head of OC of an International Council Meeting, or even among the members of the International Board of ELSA.
If you are an ELSA member and want to apply for the programme, a call for scholars is issued before every International Council Meeting of ELSA at the respective ELSA-Mailing list.
