Summer School.

There is a countless number of summer school programs that vary in duration and course fees. Sign up directly with the organizer. And there are grants and scholarships available to help you out financially. So, what are you waiting for?


The 2022 summer schools with discounts will presumably be published as of February.




The following scholarships are available to attend a summer school program abroad (not restricted to the ones listed above):

The JKU Study Abroad Scholarship

The scholarship is a subsidy to help cover the course fees and is a max. of € 250 in Europe and a max. of € 500 outside of Europe.

Apply online BEFORE taking part in the program and submit the following:

  • Current CV
  • Current transcripts
  • Reason for wanting to attend a summer school program
  • Course program and schedule
  • Doctoral candidates: Dissertation agreement and statement issued by a professor in the field about the advantage and academic relevance of the summer school program (this will also replace credit transfer documents)

Please note: Any approved scholarship will only be paid out after at least 1 ECTS credit per course week has been transferred. We strongly recommend applying for a pre-approval application before the summer school program starts.

You Receive a Study Grant ("Studienbeihilfe")

If you attend a month-long language course abroad, you can submit an application to the Study Grant Authority in Linz to receive your study abroad grant. The pre-requisite is getting a minimum of 3 ECTS credits transferred.

If the course is less than one month, you can apply for study allowance ("Studienunterstützung") (PDF, German only). This is usually approved based on the study abroad grant.

You Are Officially Registered as a Resident of Upper Austria

If Upper Austria has been your official main residence for at least 1 year and you still need financial aid to help fund an immersion language course abroad, you can also apply for a scholarship from the state of Upper Austria as part of the IPS (Internationalization Program for Students). The amount is a max. of € 100 per month (the course must be at least 10 days long). In addition, you could receive a travel allowance for up to max. € 240 in Europe and a max. of € 480 outside of Europe.

You can apply by submitting the form "Other Stays Abroad: Scholarship Application" in the online application portal BEFORE your stay abroad begins.
