The Department of Political Science is committed to sustaining a geographically diverse and multicultural student body. To further this goal, the department accepts financial aid applications from students from all over the world. Scholarships and tuition fee waivers are available for both Master (one-year and two-year) and PhD studies on a competitive basis.
CEU has a merit-based scholarship program, open to all nations. All accepted PhD candidates receive a full scholarship package (worth approx. 750 EUR/month). The department is proud that about 90% of the MA students receive some kind of financial support that can range from tuition waiver to a full stipend (worth approx. 360 EUR/month) for the duration of the program.
The department also wishes to recognize student excellence, therefore each academic year a number of additional scholarship packages is available for financial aid upgrade of the top performing enrolled students.
