Grants for Enrolled Students

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 and doctoral students.

3. Research and Travel Funds

CEU believes in giving its students opportunities to access as much knowledge as possible.
