Scholarship Offering Institutions

You may apply for scholarships offered by outside institutions. Please be aware that these institutions have their own application deadlines and procedures. In many cases, up to ten months or even more may pass between your first contact with a scholarship-awarding institution and a final decision on your application. Thus, if you depend on such support, please start the application process as soon as possible. Parallel to that you should be applying for admission to our program. Ideally, you should start preparing both as early as November if you wish to begin your studies in October the next year.
