- and for most or the EU - DON'T usually cover the whole cost of the tuition fee. In many cases, the scholarships available for international students are only a fraction of the amount offered for Austrian students, so don’t expect a grant of more than 30% of your tuition fee. Having said that, we know that every little helps when it comes to finances, if you are an international student. This is particularly true to overseas students, who are subject to higher fees.
twenty percent of Webster Vienna’s
students receive some form of financial support through international
scholarships, bursary or sponsorships. Webster’s opportunities are
mainly of the merit-based type. Webster Scholars
programme, for example, offers newly enrolled undergraduate students a
merit-based scholarship of 33% of the tuition fee, including books.
also offers work-study scholarships based on academic excellence, experience,
and suitability. The students receive partial tuition support in return for
working as student assistants.
These are just some examples of the international scholarships students can apply for directly with universities in Vienna, usually after enrolling.
If you are still
in the process of choosing an institution, please check the full list of Vienna Universities. Your chosen university
will also be able to inform you about any partnership/ third party programmes
available for that year.
It is also a good idea to check the agencies of your home country for any funding available to students from your nationality who wish to study abroad.
If you can’t find suitable international scholarships within your university, or with your local agencies, don’t give up. There are many other possibilities. You can proceed by checking the agencies listed below:
The Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research (OeAD) focus on academic mobility and offers a wealth of grant opportunities for international students.
The international scholarships awarded by OeAD usually target the inclusion of minorities and opportunities for students from certain countries or regions to study abroad.
These include, for example, scholarships for descendants of forced labour workers or for people
who come from countries that have exceptionally suffered from the Nazi regime.
The OeAD website also has information on third party scholarship opportunities.
Unesco also offers a variety of scholarships to study abroad.
For students within the European Union, another option of funding to study in Vienna is Erasmus +. This programme will provide a range of international scholarships, work experience and volunteering opportunities for over 4 million European students between 2014-2020.
You can also find scholarships for international students through one of the many scholarship databases available.
Grant.at, for example, is Austria’s most comprehensive database for scholarships and research grants in German and English language. Grant lets you browse through international scholarships for undergraduates, graduates and researchers in Austria, as well as for student prizes and practical training courses.
Scholarships.at is both a scholarships database and a platform for most of the scholarship applications in Austria.
International scholarship application processes vary
from institution to institution. If you are applying for a university-funded
award, you will most likely have to apply directly with the university after
having enrolled for a course.
For merit-based international scholarships, the list of documents you need to submit is usually very similar to the ones you would normally use for your international application to the university:
Sometimes there is a face-to-face interview.
For certain types of international scholarships, if they are not merit-based, all you need to do to apply is manifest your interest and send your contact details. This may be the case when there are loads of grants available and the only requirement is for the candidate to be from a certain nationality, for example. A big part of the scholarship applications in Austria is done online via scholarships.at.
Again, this will vary, so it is important to contact the funding institution directly for more information.
Make sure you allow yourself enough time to prepare your application and all necessary documents to meet the submission deadline. Deadlines for submission are usually between March and September of the starting academic year, but vary according to each awarding institution. Note that some application processes work on a first-come, first served basis. You may find it useful to keep a calendar of the application dates, especially if you are planning to apply for more than one bursary programme.
Remember that despite the high competition, being awarded an international scholarship is not an impossible achievement. The more organised and informed you are, the higher your chances of getting help with your fees. By the way, FeelsLikeHome helps you keep on top of your scholarship to study abroad research & application processes ;-). If you need any special assistant just click on the contact us button and an international scholarships expert will get in touch with you asap.
Make sure to dedicate time for each application, submit all required documents, and send a good quality essay/personal statement, when required.
Finally, make sure to check your finances. If you are unsure if you can support yourself in Vienna even with a scholarship, it is best to speak with someone from the international office from your chosen university before you enrol, to see what other help you can get.
