ASE offers a number of scholarships and assistantships (or work study opportunities) which can effectively reduce the cost of attending the Programme.
A personal letter of application for any of the offerings listed below should be submitted at the time of applying to the Programme, and this should be accompanied by documentation from your Financial Aid Office detailing any awards currently received. For merit-based scholarships, evidence of relevant academic achievement should be included.
A maximum of one scholarship and one assistantship will be awarded to any single student.
