Financial Aid for Admitted Students

Financial aid, awarded based on a combination of academic merit and financial need, is available for most CEU programs to students from any country. Make sure to check the information on the relevant departmental website before applying.  

Applicants should make a responsible assessment of their financial situation before requesting CEU financial aid and also seek other sources of support, such as foundation grants, employer support or state scholarships.

Accepted master’s students who wish to apply for CEU financial aid must submit an application in addition to their academic application package.

Please note: Only students accepted to master’s programs with financial aid available can apply for financial support.

Accepted doctoral candidates who apply by February 1, 2018 (insert hyperlink) are automatically considered for financial aid and do not need to apply separately.
