Financial Aid & Scholarships

Finance1

VUST is sensitive and responsive to our students’ varying needs and circumstances. We will provide limited financial aid through governmental grants, student loans from VUST’s partnered Banks, and university’s scholarships.  These programs would make VUST’s costs comparable to most institutions.

The Office of Financial Aid is available to counsel prospective and current students on the types of aid available and to help you through the application and funding process. University will announce the two types of scholarship soon.

Please note: VUST is a new university and is not in the list of FAFSA website yet. If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to contact VUST finance office.
