Webster understands that for any student undertaking their undergraduate degree in Austria, there are significant costs to consider. Our scholarship opportunities aim to facilitate the transition into university life and provide students with the chance to experience all that Webster has to offer.
For enrolled students, The Webster Vienna Training Scholarship (WVTS) is another available option.
