Student Welfare Service (Ministry of Education, Sport and Youth)

The government offers the following grants to students studying in higher education institutions in Cyprus:

A 'student grant' can be awarded to short, first, and second-cycle students studying at the accredited programs of study in order to support their studies in Cyprus and/or abroad. To be eligible, students must have resided in Cyprus for at least five years before enrolment to a University/Higher Education Institution. The amount of the grant is based on the family income and ranges between EUR 750 to EUR 3,420.

The 'student allowance' is a targeted need-based grant to cover living costs, books, rental, and computer expenses of first-cycle students based on their socioeconomic status. The maximum amount given is EUR 3692 per year. The grant provider is the Student Welfare Service, established under the Ministry of Education, Sport, and Youth, which is responsible for both the 'student grant' and the 'student allowances'.
