Your education is a wise investment in your future. Through high quality academic programs and the benefits of a prestigious American diploma, RIT Croatia offers an excellent return on that investment. Every year we secure a significant amount of money for scholarships and financial aid to help qualified students finance their education.
Scholarship and financial supportIn order to support qualified students in financing their studies, RIT Croatia has secured over € 350,000.00 for scholarships and financial aid for enrollment in the 2016/2017 academic year. Scholarships and financial aid are monetary funds applied towards the tuition cost of attending the university over four years of study. Scholarships can be applied to the following undergraduate programs: International Hospitality and Service Management, International Business, and Information Technology.
Candidates who complete their application form by February 15, 2016 will be given priority consideration for scholarships and financial aid. Applications received after February 15 will be considered for scholarships and financial aid if remaining funds are available.
Applications received after February 15 will be considered for scholarships and financial aid if funds are available.
Financial aid is awarded in the amount of € 1,000.00 to € 10,000.00. The amount awarded is deducted from the student's total annual tuition amount. The total amount of financial aid granted is divided into four years of study, and can cover up to 30% percent of tuition costs. To apply for financial aid answer "YES" in the application form when asked: Are you applying for Financial Aid? Also provide information about your average monthly family income (family net monthly income) and your family status (single/two parent household).
Financial aid is awarded to students according to the following criteria:
- financial need (estimated income of parents/guardians and the number of household members). This data is subsequently checked
- motivation for studying at RIT Croatia (assessed through the motivational essay/motivational interview)
- academic achievements during high school and/or entrance exam results
To apply for financial aid you should:
- complete the online application form
- submit your high school transcripts
- write and submit a motivational essay in English (A4, min. 400 words)
- participate in a motivational interview (in English) with one of our faculty or staff
- submit transcripts from the other higher education institution (transfer students)
Candidates who apply by February 15, 2016 will be given priority consideration for scholarships and financial aid. Applications received after February 15 will be considered for scholarships and financial aid if remaining funds are available. Eligible students are all senior high schools students, students who wish to transfer from other universities (transfer students), and candidates who finished high school in the previous years.

During the year, several scholarship contests are announced on our website and on Facebook. All candidates who contact our Admissions office and show interest in receiving financial aid are contacted via email about contests.
