In addition to its comprehensive financial aid packages, CEU offers other opportunities to apply for financial support to enrolled students.
1. Erasmus Mobility Scheme
Students enrolled at CEU wishing to spend three to 12 months studying at another country's institution may be eligible for an Erasmus study grant. This grant contributes towards covering the difference in living expenses abroad.
2. Academic Awards
CEU provides incentives for academic excellence and rewards those promising students who, with their work, have shown outstanding academic potential. Academic awards are granted to both master's and doctoral students.
3. Research and Travel Funds
CEU believes in giving its students opportunities to access as much knowledge as possible. That is why the University provides Travel Grants for students, contributing to the cost of traveling abroad and attending academic conferences. All travel-related costs are covered, as well as conference fees, accommodation, and administrative costs (food and fuel costs are not covered). In addition, Short-Research Grants help students enhance their dissertations. Doctoral students are eligible to receive one such award during their second or third year of study. Master's students may receive such grants organized by their departments.
