Scholarships and Funding

Overview
  • Tuition

    Each UNU degree programme has a unique tuition scheme. These schemes vary depending on the programme level (e.g., doctoral or master’s), duration and location. For more information about the tuition fees of a specific degree programme, follow the links provided in each programme description. We also invite you to visit the UNU institute websites, where you will find more detailed information on tuition fees.

    Financial Support

    Some degree programmes may offer tuition waivers for students with outstanding academic records, who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance. Prospective students should inquire with the admissions office for the programme to which they are applying to learn more about opportunities for financial support. Please keep in mind that financial support is limited and selection is highly competitive. UNU is unfortunately unable to provide financial support to all applicants. Applicants are encouraged to seek funding from outside sources; this may include, home country governments, private foundations and international funding agencies.

    Scholarships

    A limited number of scholarships are awarded to outstanding applicants. Scholarship opportunities vary for each degree programme and requests should be submitted with the programme application documents. For more information about the scholarships available for a specific programme, please visit the UNU institute website associated with the programme. If you have more detailed questions, please contact the focal point for the degree programme directly. Contact information for each programme is located on the programme description page.
