Our Mentors Say
« The idea of being able to help others to fully exploit their potential fascinated me right from the start. I was surprised at how uncomplicated and effective ApplicAid is: There were only a few hours between my registration as a mentor and my first mentor interview.
Thanks to the targeted matching of scholarships, the mentoring program is extremely effective and enables very specific application tips to be made that match the respective scholarship.
Applicaid has also proved to be very enriching for me as a mentor, working with motivated students. »
Charlotte Ziers (Be.Boosted)
« My undergraduate studies at Yale University and my graduate studies at the University of Oxford as a member of the Rhodes Scholarship community have changed my life, and I want to help make opportunities like these more accessible to low-income and first-generation college students. I believe that access to quality education is key to improving social mobility, and I want to contribute to enabling everyone to achieve their full potential—irrespective of socioeconomic background. »
Tim Rudner (Rhodes Scholar)
« How to fight educational inequality?
An important first step is providing access to scholarships especially for disadvantaged students to realise their full potential.
As a mentor with a diverse cultural background as well, I want to help these young talents and help them apply for various scholarships and grants and be a guide through their application process. »
Hümeyra Husseini (German National Merit Foundation)
« With ApplicAid, I can have a big impact in a short time and change the lives of many people for the better. Here I get the perfect platform to connect with fellows from all over the world and regularly receive the most interesting fellowship programs. I want to be the mentor I always wanted when I applied for a scholarship. »
