    DG Interpretation bursaries

    Each year, the Directorate General for Interpretation (DG Interpretation, also known as SCIC) offers a number of bursaries.

    DG Interpretation study bursaries are available to students of all disciplines who have been accepted for a full-time postgraduate training course in conference interpreting offered by a recognised university or university-level institution. If successfully completed, this will lead to a qualification certifying that you are able to work as a professional conference interpreter in both consecutive and simultaneous modes.



    • you are a national of an EU Member State or of one of the candidate countries (Albania, The Republic of North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia or Turkey);
    • you already have a university degree or equivalent qualification, or are in the final year of a course leading to a university degree or equivalent qualification,
    • you have applied or intend to apply for a full Master/postgraduate course in conference interpreting offered for the year 2023/2024 by a recognised university or university-level institution. For courses that last more than one year, only final year students will be eligible, and
    • you need to pay/have paid a tuition fee for the academic year 2023/2024 (= final year of your Master/Postgraduate course). Please note that you are not eligible to apply if your Master/postgraduate course is free of charge,
    • you are registered with one of the following active languages: Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Maltese, Portuguese, Slovak or Slovene or
    • you are registered with one of the active language in your course with a retour into English, French or German: Estonian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian, Spanish or Swedish
    • and your passive languages and/or retour language in line with the preferential profiles as published here.

    The bursary will amount to the equivalent of the tuition fee for academic year 2023-2024, with a ceiling amount of EUR 3 000.
