The European Commission on Wednesday announced the launch of the ‘EU Scholarships for the Turkish Cypriot community Programme for the Academic Year 2021/22’ funded under the Aid Programme.

In this round, the EU Scholarship Programme will award grants to approximately 140 Turkish Cypriot students, graduates and professionals.

This comes in addition to more than 1,600 individuals, who have already benefited from EU Scholarship grants since 2007.

As usual, this year’s programme is addressed to undergraduate and postgraduate studies, as well as short-term programmes including internships and language courses in EU Member States.

The priority areas have been revised, including Covid-19 related subjects. Applicants in these areas will receive additional points during the evaluation, with better chances to win the scholarship.

All interested applicants are invited to apply online through the EU Scholarships application portal

Deadline to submit applications online only: 29 April 2021 at 23:59 Cyprus time

An online launch event will be held on Wednesday at 5pm via ABBurs Facebook page and ABBurs Youtube channel.

The EU Scholarship Programme is fully funded by the EU and is implemented by the British Council.
