Financial Support for Students
The objective of the Financial Aid Program at European University Cyprus is to provide financial assistance to students who need aid in order to begin or complete their studies at European University Cyprus. It must be noted however that the funds for Financial Aid are provided by European University Cyprus and are limited. Students and their families are expected to finance their education and Financial Aid should be considered only as supplemental assistance.
European University Cyprus has established procedures and practices which assure fair and consistent treatment for all students.
Types of Financial Aid
European University Cyprus offers Financial Aid in the form of scholarships, grants and on-campus work programs. All types of Financial Aid available are explained below:
Academic Excellence Scholarships
The academic excellence scholarships are annually awarded to the top ranked students of each School of the University. The scholarships are awarded to eligible candidates as follows:
||Grade Point Average (G.P.A.)
The scholarship amount received may be used only as tuition waiver by those students who will register for the next academic year.
All undergraduate students enrolled for at least 30 credits during the academic year (Fall and Spring Semester) are candidates for this scholarship. Scholarships are based on the G.P.A. (Grade Point Average) of the academic year and are awarded irrespective of financial need. More information about these scholarships can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar.
High School Scholarships
High school scholarships are awarded to outstanding graduating students from Cypriot High Schools.
Athletic scholarships are offered to students who participate in the intercollegiate sports teams of the university. The scholarships range from 5 to 50% of tuition and are based upon the participant’s level of performance.
The exact amount of the athletic scholarship is based on the participant’s performance and other guidelines set down by the Athletic Department of the University.
On-campus Work Programs
European University Cyprus offers a wide variety of part-time, on-campus jobs in the University offices and departments. Students can work for a maximum of twenty hours a week and are compensated in the form of tuition and/or wages. Available jobs are announced at the beginning of every semester and are posted on the main bulletin board of the University.
Financial Aid Program (Grants)
The available grants are:
The family grant is provided when a family has more than one child enrolled at European University Cyprus. Each additional child enrolled gets a 15% grant.
Students who come from large families (4 children or more) are eligible for a 15% grant.
Need Grants are awarded to native students only and are based mainly on substantial financial need, regardless of academic performance. The amount of the grant provided depends upon the student’s need of assistance, but grants usually amount to less than the tuition and fees of the semester. Students interested in this type of grant must complete the "Financial Aid Application Form" and submit it to the Bursar’s Office
