Gabriel (24 Years)
Pastry chef becomes food technologist
«I did not receive any scholarships from the state, but I convinced private donors.»
tipps:Ausbildung: BSc Food Technology at the Bern University of Applied Sciences
Financial need: CHF 22,100
Gabriel's studies at a university of applied sciences were no longer eligible for a scholarship as a secondary education. Growing up in a single-parent household, he had too few financial resources. The solution: Gabriel prepared a convincing dossier. With this, he was able to win two private donors for educational loans as well as a small scholarship from a private foundation.
