For whom? 

Sprettur is designed for promising students with immigrant backgrounds who come from families where no one has a university education. 

Participation in Sprettur starts during the autumn of the first year of upper secondary school and continues for four years. 

What do Sprettur participants do? 

Participants learn more about themselves, their communities, and higher education. 

We offer participants workshops, study groups, cultural events, mentoring, etc.

Students take part in Sprettur for four years. 

    What is in it for me?

    • Social and educational support
    • Financial support
    • A mentor
    • Personal development
    • Empowerment

    How do I participate?

    In January 2021, we will be accepting new applications. Students in their last year of compulsory school can apply by sending. 

    Ten participants are chosen to take part in Sprettur for the following four years. We strive for an equal gender balance.
