CEU Scolarships to Support Athletes

The CEU Merit 100 - 65 and Athlete Support Scholarships were created with the aim of attracting the best athletes and promising sportsmen and sportswomen. This scholarship is complemented by the CEU Athlete Support Programme, which favours the conciliation of sporting and academic careers in order to be successful and allow students to enter the labour market once they have completed their sporting careers.

They may involve the reduction of tuition fees by up to 100% for the degree chosen for the 2024-2025 academic year, taking into account academic criteria and valuing the accreditation of knowledge of other languages and participation in social and extracurricular activities. The Commission will also take into account the results of the admission tests.

In the case of two simultaneous degrees, the scholarship will be applied exclusively to the tuition fees of the first of the degrees.


These scholarships may be awarded to those students who can prove their status as elite sportsmen and women or promising young people and whose average mark in 1st and 2nd year of Bachillerato is equal to or higher than 7 (out of 10).

Single call for proposals: 

  • Deadline for submission: until 10 June 2024 at 23:59.
  • Resolution date: 20 June 2024.

Log in to your Future Student Portal, go to the Scholarships section and fill in the application form.
