arbing scholarship

One of the main purposes of the Arbing Blog is to encourage students to try out and explore out-of-the-box approaches to entrepreneurship.

Therefore I am proud to announce that we have created a scholarship fund for Undergraduate or Postgraduate students with a passion for entrepreneurship.

Every quarter we award three scholarships of $1,000 each. For a total of $12,000 in scholarships a year.
