While KGU does not offer any unique scholarships for exchange students, we may recommend students to apply to external organizations. Such scholarships depend on the external organization’s budget and KGU cannot guarantee the number of scholarships we will be allocated. As a whole, the number of scholarships has decreased in recent years. Prospective exchange students are not to assume that they will receive a scholarship and should therefore plan their budget accordingly.
Past participants have received scholarships through corporations, national governments, and non-governmental organizations. CIEC will support applications to these scholarships, but the solicitation and application to the scholarship are the responsibility of the student.
