Principal Scholarships Available
for Self-funded International Students

Scholarships are not generally offered to students enrolled in the first year of an undergraduate, master's degree, or doctoral degree program, since they do not yet have a record of academic performance at TAU. Most scholarships take the form of grants (i.e., they do not need to be reimbursed upon graduation) and are conditional upon outstanding academic performance.
