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. All accepted PhD candidates are fully funded positions. The department is proud that about 90% of the MA students receive some kind of financial support that can range from partial tuition waiver to a full scholarship for the duration of the program. CEU has a merit- and need-based scholarship program, open to all applicants.
