General Information

The documents must be submitted digitally as individual PDF-files to Center New Orleans until the due-date. If you submit them earlier, there will be more time to go over and check them in case of discrepancies.

Please contact us immediately if any problems or delays in the acquisition of information or files become apparent.


 

New Orleans Performance-Scholarship

The scholarships are awarded to Innsbruck students due to the longstanding successful partnership between the University of Innsbruck and the University of New Orleans, in order to enable outstanding students in need to go on an exchange to New Orleans.

 

Amount

Four scholarships per semester or eight scholarships per year can be awarded, amounting to 2500.-€  each.
If your application is granted you will receive a part of the sum every month of your stay.

 


Depending on availability a Tuition Waiver can be awarded. Studying with one means that you will not be charged any tuition for one semester at UNO. The Tuition Waiver supersedes the Performance-Scholarship.
If one is available, one person will be selected from the group of scholarship-applicants.
