Scholarships

Who are the scholarships for?

For many years, the WU Executive Academy has been supporting high potentials, female applicants, and other applicants with financial need to achieve their educational and career goals by offering scholarships. The scholarships are open for applicants for whom financing the tuition fee is a challenge. The admissions committee considers the personal situation of each scholarship applicant and decides individually whether a scholarship will be awarded and in what amount. Applicants for scholarships need to be self-funded or partially sponsored by their company to a maximum of 50%. Additional eligibility criteria - besides the regular application requirements - for each scholarship can be found below.
