Financing Your Studies

Studying at the DA is a significant investment and requires careful planning. Funding for our graduate programmes is competitive. On average, more than 30 percent of our students receive financial assistance, mostly in the form of partial tuition waivers.

Financial support: Easy application

In general, DA financial assistance is awarded on the basis of academic excellence. However, some scholarships focus on specific subject areas and/or on students from particular regions (e.g. scholarships for DA programmes sponsored by the Austrian Development Agency).
