Scholarships, fellowships, and support are provided to Jacobs University students with the support of alumni around the world. Some, like the Claus Halle Scholarship, were established in honor of Constructor University Foundation of America members, while others will be sustained by donations from generous CUFA members.
Notably, CUFA is currently expanding a scholarship fund that provides a sustainable, merit-based partial scholarship. This is the first alumni-driven scholarship from CUFA, and you are warmly encouraged to contribute to the fund. Donate here.

Current Scholarships

​Established in 2015, the CUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund allows alumni to contribute to a sustainable, recurring, merit-based scholarship for students worldwide. The future CUFA Alumni Scholarship will be awarded out of interest accrued on the fund, to ensure its sustainability. The fund aims to raise US$100,000 by 2020.

The Constructor University Foundation of America is committed to high-quality international education for all, regardless of nationality or financial status. Thus in 2015, we established the CUFA Alumni Scholarship Fund, to give hard-working students access to a Jacobs’ education. The Fund follows an endowment model, meaning that no scholarships or rewards will be paid out of the principal of the endowment, but instead from the interest paid on the endowment. This is important because it is ensures the fund will be sustainable in perpetuity.

The first scholarship awarded in 2017 is the Ronny Wells Scholarship. Click here for more information.
