Participants of a univie: summer/winter school have the opportunity to receive a tuition waiver for their selected univie: summer/winter school from the University of Vienna.

Target group

Degree-programme students and young researchers in all disciplines from the University of Vienna and its partner universities can apply for a scholarship. You must have been admitted to a Bachelor's/Diploma/Master's/PhD's degree programme.

A list of all partner universities can be found under University-wide partnership agreements.

Selection criteria

  • Previous academic record (duration of studies and grades). The scientific prae-qualification of prae-docs will also be taken into account.
  • Applicants receiving a student allowance (proof required) and students from partner universities of the University of Vienna receive preferential treatment.

Tuition waivers for univie: summer/winter schools are awarded by the organisers of the selected univie: summer/winter school. Applicants will be informed in writing of the results of the selection procedure. If you have been awarded a tuition waiver, you will be asked to fill in the "declaration of acceptance" (will be sent together with the notification of successful application) and to email it to the International Office.

Compliance with the formal requirements of application does not imply a legal claim to financial support. Tuition waivers will be awarded according to competitive criteria and the availability of funds.


The application for the scholarship is made together with the application for the selected univie: summer/winter school. Please, check on the website of the particular school or with the organisers if the application forms have to be submitted electronically and/or in hardcopy.

The application deadlines for a tuition waiver are based on the registration deadlines for the respective univie: summer/winter school.

Applications must be submitted before the start of the selected univie: summer/winter school. Applications submitted after this date will not be considered.

The univie: summer/winter school tuition waiver will be awarded once, either for a univie: summer or winter school.
