Financial Aid
As the number of scholarships available is limited, external funding offered by institutions or individuals is welcome so that we can invite more well qualified applicants. When choosing the financial aid package, please consider if you or your institution can contribute to the program expenses. Faculty and Ph.D. students are advised to approach their home departments for travel grants; researchers may have research grants available which can cover their participation; professionals may turn to their employers to fund their training at SUN. You can also consult some non-CEU funding opportunities listed in our FAQ sectionWhile selection of applicants will be based on the academic merit of the applications, those willing to bear the participation costs fully or partially will be preferred in case of equally strong applications.
  • Financial aid is available in the following categories:
    - tuition waiver
    - accommodation grant
    - travel grant (full or partial)
  • Participants can apply for financial aid in all categories listed above. There are a few tuition waivers and a limited number of scholarship packages available on a competitive basis. Those who require some type of financial aid need to send a separate cover letter outlining their financial aid request and providing background information that supports their claim for assistance.
  • In case an applicant is accepted to two courses, which is only possible if the two courses are run consecutively, financial aid is only available for attending one course.
