Roma Memorial University Scholarship Program
The Roma Memorial University Scholarship (RMUSP) is for eligible Roma students at the university level.
The amount of the annual RMUSP scholarship grant is calculated on the basis of 80 EURO per academic month. The RMUSP scholarships must be used to cover textbooks, exam fees and partially living expenses. If funds permit, the RMUSP scholarship may, at its sole discretion, also cover partial or full tuition fee expenses, however, the total amount of the grant shall in no case exceed 2,000 EUR, combined by 800 EUR basic scholarship per academic year plus the tuition fee.
Please note that there is no guarantee that the scholarship amount will cover partial or full tuition for a successful applicant. The scholarships are not automatically awarded for the subsequent academic year; scholars can apply for renewal subject to successful completion of the prior academic year.
