Ministry of Education and Science Scholarships

Dear Students,

I want to share with you an important scholarship opportunity now available to students enrolled at ACS. Due to a recent Government Act, students in good standing in Bulgarian schools are eligible to receive scholarships for academic excellence. The scholarship funds are provided by the Bulgarian state budget and are determined each year by the Annual Budget Act of Bulgaria. These funds are then distributed proportionately to Bulgarian schools based on the number of eligible students. Eligible students at the College include citizens of Bulgaria, the EU, or the Swiss Confederation who are long-term or permanent residents in Bulgaria and enrolled in the ACS Bulgarian program. Application procedures and requirements for receiving such scholarships for academic excellence are posted in this section of the ACS website.  

Please note that all ACS students who are eligible according to the established criteria will be contacted by the Registrar’s Office in early January and invited to fill out an application for scholarship funding. The deadline for submitting this application will be January 23. All applications received by the deadline will be reviewed by the ACS Scholarship Committee, which includes members of the Dean’s Faculty Advisory Committee (DFAC) and members of the administration. Students who receive awards will be notified directly and arrangements made for the disbursement of awarded funds. 

Again, I am delighted to announce this opportunity for scholarship funding. If you have questions about this program, please direct them to the Registrar’s Office or the office of the Dean of Students.

With best wishes to you all,

Richard T. Ewing, Jr., Ed.D.
American College of Sofia
