Algebra University College is under no obligation to approve scholarships in case the quality of received applications is not satisfactory.
Scholarship programs are not cumulative and scholarships cannot be added, but students choose (between the programs they have qualified for) the one that is the most convenient.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT


Through this program the Algebra University College wishes to reduce the impact of commercial studying conditions on the possibility for enrolment of talented students and thus provide top conditions for studying computing and digital marketing to those students who are willing to invest serious work and dedication and have justified financial constraints. The application for financial support is not linked to the application for any type of scholarship program and is available only for students entering the first year of undergraduate or graduate studies. The financial support is awarded for the first year of studies exclusively on the basis of real needs and its extension to other years of studies will depend on the efforts made by the student during the studies. Along with the application for financial support candidates need to attach the necessary documents that act as proof of statements made in the application (stated on the application form), and will need to explain the need for support and their motivation for studies through an interview at the Career Centre. Application for financial support can be downloaded here.
The application deadlines for financial support correspond to the enrolment deadlines and are not related to the deadlines of the scholarship programs. The Administrative Council is responsible for granting the decision on financial support based on the applications received, the total funds available for grants and opinion of the Career Centre after the motivational interview and the examination of documents submitted by the candidate.
