The Romanian Government Scholarships 2024–2025 are completely financed for international students. Additionally, these scholarships are offered for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral studies. Scholarships from the Romanian government will pay the whole cost of education, housing, and a monthly stipend of up to 80 EUR.
Initially, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Romanian government awards a number of scholarships to nationals of non-EU nations each year. Moreover, only candidates with good academic results, or an average of the study years for the most recent school where they graduated, of at least 7 (seven), matching the Romanian scoring system or the “Good” score, as the case may be, are qualified. Specifically, all areas, with the exception of medicine, dental medicine, and pharmacy, allow applicants to choose the study program of their choice.

Basically, the recipients of the scholarships provided by the Romanian state for undergraduate and master’s degrees study exclusively in Romanian in order to promote the Romanian language and culture. Additionally, the only exemption is for those with doctoral scholarships, who may choose to study in Romanian or another language determined by the doctoral institution. Moreover, with the exception of recipients of doctoral scholarships who have chosen the course of study in a foreign language specified by the doctoral school, candidates who do not speak Romanian are given a preparation year to study the language before beginning their university studies.
