The European Union Scholarship Programme for the Turkish Cypriot Community

Selection Process


There are 3 stages in the selection process;

  • Stage 1 – Written Tests
  • Stage 2 – Motivation Letter and Interview
  • Stage 3 – Eligibility Checks and Confirmation of Awards

There will be a screening process and applicants who do not reach the required score within their category/sub-category will be eliminated from the process, i.e. they will not be able to move from Stage 1 to Stage 2.

The scores for the above tests will be weighted according to a weighting system that will be applied to the scores for all sub-categories/categories of scholarships.

Candidates in all categories must score at least 60% threshold in their overall final scores to qualify for the award of a scholarship or to be included in the reserve list. However, scoring 60% or above does not guarantee the award of a scholarship. 60% is the minimum required to be placed on the ranking list in each sub-category. Candidates with the highest scores in each sub-category will be selected for a scholarship grant, with the number of scholarships being limited by the funding allocation for each category / sub-category and the overall scholarship fund.
