Scholarships

UCFF focuses specifically on students from non-European countries since the tuition fees for them are three times as high as for EU students, hence 12,600 euros per year (in 2020). We aim to establish two types of scholarships over the coming years:

UCFF Housing Scholarship

UCFF Housing Scholarship

approx. 4.000 EUR

The housing scholarship covers the mandatory accommodation of a student in the first year of their studies. It enables the student to have an easier start with one burden less to think about at the beginning of the program.

UCFF One Year Scholarship

UCFF One Year Scholarship

approx. 6.500 EUR

The one-year scholarship covers half of the tuition fees for a single academic year for a student from outside of Europe. This one-time reduction in tuition fees will provide them a good start to overcome the first challenges of entering the university.

Scholarships

UCFF creates scholarships for students who do not have the financial means to afford the program otherwise. We hope to enable more equal entrance opportunities especially for people outside of Europe, from the Global South in order to diversify and authentify an inclusive perspective and approach in class as well as target global challenges as one global community.
