iSTEPup: share our story
iSTEPup is looking for new candidates and we need you for that.
If you are working, doing an internship or on a holiday abroad in any low or middle income country you can help us! Even if you are not going, but you know people in your surroundings that will go abroad, you can help us. The students on these photos also heard of the iSTEPup programme through people like you. Please keep an eye out for us, spread the word and if you do meet that potential healthcare worker that needs iSTEPup, apply!
Here you can find a number of the iSTEPup students who are included in our programme. With your help, they can follow the medical study they have always dreamed of and thus make a difference in their own country. The iSTEPup Foundation therefore strives for self-reliance.
If you hover over the photos you see the name, study and country where the student comes from. If you click on the photo a new tab will open with the student’s personal page. On this page the student explains why he or she needs the scholarship and you will find information about the study, the costs and the buddy introduces him or herself. You will also find the study results, updates and photos here. In this way, iSTEPup hopes to be transparent for both the donors and the students themselves. More importantly, you can follow them every step of the way!
