World’s First Crowd-Funded Accommodation Scholarship Launches for Higher Education


Uniplaces, the world’s fastest growing online accommodation booking service for students, has today launched the world’s first crowd-funded accommodation scholarship for students living anywhere in the world.

The initiative, named the ‘Living The Dream Scholarship’, is the first ever programme to support student mobility funded collectively by the global student community.

The initiative aims to promote kindness as currency, with students applying for the scholarship submitting videos of themselves carrying out ‘random acts of kindness’ on fellow students.

Interestingly, the scholarship is built on a Social Growth Model, meaning that it grows as Uniplaces grows. With every booking made through the Uniplaces website, £1 will be placed in the fund.
