Scholarship Benefits

  • Here’s a breakdown of the typical financial assistance offered:
    1. Tuition Costs: The scholarship usually covers tuition fees for the duration of the Master’s program. This relieves the recipient of the financial burden associated with paying tuition fees directly.
    2. Personal Allowance: Recipients typically receive a personal allowance, which is index-linked according to an independent authority. This allowance is meant to cover living expenses and other personal costs incurred during the period of study.
    3. Other Allowances: Additional allowances may be provided for specific purposes, such as arrival expenses, purchasing a laptop for academic use, and departure expenses. These allowances aim to support the student’s overall well-being and academic needs.
    4. Travel Expenses: The scholarship often includes economy class tickets for travel to the place of study at the beginning of the program and for the return journey upon completion of the studies. This ensures that the student can travel to and from the study destination without financial strain.
