Financial Aid

The cost of studying at the University of Science and Technology is currently 55,000 EGP (Fifty Five Thousands Egyptian Pounds) per semester, and is subject to an annual increase. This cost includes access to original individual textbooks during the courses, access to transportation routes supplied by Zewail City and mandatory laboratory supplies for experiments. Every student has to pay a financial contribution (FC) for his/her cost of study in the university depending on his/her family’s financial status.

Financial contributions (FC) may be paid through installments (as per each student's payment plan), cash deposits in any CIB branch or bank transfer with submitting the original payment receipt to the Admission and Registration Office each semester.

Financial Support

Zewail City offers a number of financial aid plans to its Egyptian students based on merit and need. In order for a student to be eligible for financial support, the following has to be fulfilled:

  • Meeting all the admissions requirements
  • Demonstrating financial need

Financial support is given in the form of a fixed reduction from the cost of study, which varies from 10 % reduction to 100 % reduction depending on the financial status of the student’s family.

In awarding financial support, the university considers students' individual circumstances, the number of submitted requests for financial support from all students, and the university resources. The financial support application and supporting documents are reviewed and verified by a committee. Students or their parents may be asked for an interview or to submit additional documents.

Application for the financial support has to be done after meeting all the admissions requirements and receiving the acceptance email. Financial support applications that have missing information or missing documents will be considered incomplete and will not be evaluated.
