Funded by donations from CEU Business School graduates, the CEU Business School Alumni Scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate a commitment to building whole communities, not simply a business and remain a vital force of our alumni community after graduation.
The CEU Business School Alumni Scholarship is given to those students who otherwise would not be able to join our A1MBA program. The scholarship is awarded based upon the overall merit and financial need of the applicant. Provided as a partial tuition waiver, this Scholarship supports those incoming students who will be active community-building members of the CEU Business School and will reflect “the giving-back culture” of our School.
NOTE: Alumni Scholarship Recipients must show satisfactory academic progress, as well as complete up to 40 hours of support activities with the CEU Alumni Relations & Career Services, Student Recruitment and Academic Services unit. More information will be provided to those selected.
This scholarship is available only for incoming students and is awarded for one academic year.
