Financial Aid

The course is generously funded by CEU enabling participation at a low, subsidized tuition cost (tuition fee: 550 EUR). As some applicants may have difficulty paying for tuition and/or some of the other associated costs (travel and accommodation), a limited number of tuition waivers will be offered on a competitive basis. Those who wish to apply for a waiver should upload in the online application system a separate cover letter (max. 1 page) specifying their reasons.

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.
