Students who undertake studies in Malta may also avail themselves of various funding opportunities or scholarships, including support provided by the Maltese authorities as well as support provided by the European Union.

Scholarships provided by the Maltese authorities are issued through the Ministry for Education. A list of available scholarships is published on the Ministry’s website. These include the Endeavour Scholarship Scheme, the Malta Arts Scholarships and the Malta Sports Scholarships.

The Endeavour Scholarship Scheme supports good quality tertiary education with the aim of ensuring that the Maltese labour market is supplied with adequately trained individuals. The scheme supports those pursuing this path to succeed both at the level ​of education attainment as well as contributing effectively towards the economy, thereby placing Malta in a better position to compete at an international level.

The Malta Arts Scholarships scheme seeks to provide more opportunities to individuals who are exceptionally talented in the creation and/or promotion of expressive arts. Theatre, music, dance, design, creative writing, film, the visual arts or any combination thereof are given priority for support.​​​

The Malta Sports Scholarship scheme seeks to promote specialisation in sports, including certifications in proficiency in sporting disciplines, coaching, management and related support services. Aimed at contributing towards the development of sport in Malta, the scholarship is intended to support individuals who are exceptionally committed in any field of sport to help them pursue a programme of study leading to a specialised level in a selected sport discipline.

The European Union provides a wide range of scholarships and financial support schemes, including grants, bursaries and loans to finance one’s studies. Some schemes cover part of the tuition fees, while others cover all of the tuition fees plus support living costs too.
