Fellowships at the Master’s and Doctoral degree programs are awarded based on need or merit. Tenable only for study at AIT, fellowships waive tuition fees for a fixed number of credits.
Fellowships granted upon merit are given on the basis of cumulative GPA and class rank in previous degree(s). Students who receive fellowships upon need are evaluated based on salary statements prior to study and the income statements of spouse and parents.

AIT offers financial aid for the Master’s and Doctoral degree programs, on a competitive basis, to applicants who are outstandingly qualified and to applicants who have strong academic backgrounds and proven financial need. The AIT financial aid is only applicable for students accepted for admission to the Asian Institute of Technology.
About 60% of students admitted to AIT receive full financial aid and about 80% of students admitted receive sufficient financial aid to cover at least half of the cost of their studies.
The aid is intended to meet some of the basic expenses and to help defray but not to fully cover the study costs at AIT. It is expected that students supplement this aid from their own or non-AIT resources. The financial support does not normally include air travel grants.
Applicants requiring financial aid must fill out the Application for AIT Financial Aid form (Form 3), provide details on their employment, their personal and family incomes, and also submit a one-page essay on their reasons for seeking support. It is also useful that students explain how they can contribute to the development of their home country and the region after completing their studies at AIT.
