Financial Aid for Doctoral Students
CEU offers a competitive package to aid students on doctoral programs. Applicants to a CEU doctoral program are automatically considered for a Full Doctoral Fellowship. Students admitted to CEU doctoral degree programs are eligible to receive the Full CEU Doctoral Fellowship for up to three years.
The Full CEU Doctoral Fellowship
Covers tuition and medical insurance. In addition, full fellowship recipients are awarded a monthly stipend of 220,000 HUF calculated to cover educational and accommodation costs (Economics PhD students receive a monthly stipend of 250,000 HUF). Students need to budget additionally for travel, recreation, and incidentals, which can vary with the individual.

Doctoral students are not automatically provided with accommodation in the CEU Residence Center. They are eligible to request a room on a space-availability basis, for which they will be expected to cover their costs directly.
Additionally, in those limited cases in which a student wishes to keep his/her employment simultaneously with their studies, the student must request permission from their department. CEU may request full or partial tuition payment and will expect the student to cover his/her living costs.
All doctoral students are required to pay a Student Enrollment Fee.
