State grants are available each academic year to students in full-time study. The College’s Students Affairs Office can assist students through the necessary procedures to secure a grant.
To qualify for a state grant a student must be:
- a Cypriot or an EU citizen residing in the Republic of Cyprus with his/her family for the last 30 months.
Students who are non-Cypriot and non-EU citizens may also apply for a state grant on the condition that they:
- have at least one parent that is a Cypriot or EU citizen employed in the Republic of Cyprus
- are graduates of a Cypriot high school
- are residents in the Republic of Cyprus with his/her family for the last 30 months
Students applying for a state grant will also be required to provide financial evidence demonstrating that they meet the minimum family income criteria set forth by the Cyprus Ministry of Finance.
Funds granted to entitled students will remain the same each year however; the minimum family income limit to qualify for a grant has now been lowered to comply with new government laws introduced in 2013. Ultimately this may result in some students no longer being eligible for a state grant regardless if they have received funding the previous year.
