JKU Graduation Scholarship

As of Winter Semester 2018/2019, we can no longer accept applications to waive tuition fees due to being employed as the corresponding enactment was revoked by the Constitutional Court on June 30, 2018, with no replacement regulation.

The JKU has introduced a new scholarship regulation for a certain group of employed students previously entitled to waive tuition fees.

The application deadline for the 2019/2018 academic year ended on November 30.

How much is the graduation scholarship?

If your application is approved, you will receive a maximum of € 365 for the semester you applied for. If the relevant income is exceeded during the 2019 calendar year (€15,000), the payment will be reduced by the amount exceeded. In the event of jointly established studies, the amount of the scholarship is reduced to the percentage that is used to calculate the time period in which the applicant actively took examinations at JKU Linz.
