FAQ

How is the Seed Grant awarded?
The Seed Grant is awarded to candidates who meet the requirements and is paid in several installments prior to each semester (term) or academic year as required by the School directly to the university, as long as the student maintains good standing in the program. Financial support given will be valid for a time span of two years for one defined study plan (full-time MBA). The student is responsible for any taxes associated with the Grant. – 100% of the Seed Grant amount becomes a repayable loan in case the grantee does not return to Ukraine/Moldova for a period of no less than three years after completing their studies. Students must repay the loan in its entirety if they do not return.
