Extending The Terms Of Domestic Scholarships

For higher education students : A student's scholarship will continue in the next academic year, if he hasn't failed in any taken courses, if his current grade average is above 2.5 out of 4 or above 60 out of 100, is considered as successful by the academic institution and has successfully transitioned to the upper class.

Regardless of the grade average, the scholarship will continue if the student hasn't got completed any courses unsuccessfully. If the grade average is sufficient but the student has not more than 3 failed courses, the scholarship will be extended.

It is mandatory for a scholarship to pass the preparatory class successfully. (It is not sufficient that the year-end report states that the student has succeeded in the preparatory class, but has to document the year-end grade as well.)

For Master's and Doctorate Students : Students reported as successful will continue to receive their scholarships also the next year.

For Students at Vocational Schools: Having qualified to transition to the upper class and not having any failed courses from previous semester, makes the student eligible for the continuation of the scholarship in the next academic year.

  • Each scholar starts to receive his scholarship by knowing the terms and conditions of TEV's scholarship. With that, the scholar accepts the responsibility of any action which is going to be taken against him.
  • The scholar is supposed to inform TEV about changes like studying in a new department, moving to another school, leaving temporarily the country, being unable to study further, etc.
  • TEV requests from all educational institution the status of success of every TEV scholar. However, from time to time those certificates do not arrive at TEV. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the student to make sure that the status of success reports arrive at TEV. If the certificate is missing, then it is the responsibility of the student to send his transcript and the student report, which shows whether he is eligible to go to the upper class or not, to TEV until the end of September.
  • Students, who wish to benefit from TEV's success awards and who are ranked first in the class, department or school, must send to TEV in addition to their transcripts also a certified report from their educational institution showing that they are the best student in that academic year.
  • As a requirement of the scholarship program, scholars are obliged to participate at TEV's social activities.
  • It is essential that scholars consider themselves during the scholarship program and also after it, as a member of the TEV family and see it as their responsibility to notify TEV about any changes in their addresses, telephones, and e-mails, in order to ensure a proper communication with TEV.
  • TEV scholars consider it as a contentious responsibility to pay back after the completion of their studies the amount TEV had offered them when they start with their careers. It is also possible that each of them provides scholarships to at least one student to help them in their education likewise or ensures that someone else makes donations to TEV on behalf of them.

Additional Information :

  • Students having received a TEV scholarship during their high school education and who have entered a university program directly without losing a year in between will continue to receive a scholarship if the university is appropriate to TEV's scholarship criteria (being a state university and having a formal education). Students, who wish to continue to receive their scholarships, need to apply to TEV themselves with an application letter and provide a copy of their ÖSYS exam results, their student certificate showing that they have enrolled in a university program, and their new contact address.
  • Students, who have received a TEV scholarship during their undergraduate studies, will continue to receive a scholarship for their postgraduate studies, if they are ranked first among the faculty graduates and a break of one or more years have not been taken between their undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

If those criteria are not met, a new application has to be submitted for a scholarship.
