We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Hermann and Marianne Straniak Foundation for supporting our young yet aspiring and renowned program since the beginning. This scholarship was the first full scholarship awarded and we would like to especially thank them for this opportunity. At the Master of Human Rights, we believe in equal access to education and the opportunity to self-realization. We, as well as our students know and value the access to higher education and the great advantages it brings to an individual and the society as a whole. This scholarship opportunity signifies the values we stand for, for every individual, and by allowing for one individual to benefit from it, we hope that the gesture will spread out and give way to more activists who believe in the right to education and will return this opportunity by creating a new opportunity for another individual in the world.
