Type of Funding
Radboud University in The Netherlands is inviting high quality non-EEA and non-EU students who wish to undertake English-taught Masters programmes at the University commencing AY 2019/2020, to apply for The Radboud Scholarship Programme.
About 30 Radboud Scholarships are awarded to talented non-EEA students undertaking English-taught Masters degree programmes at Radboud University, which are: Historical, Literary and Cultural Studies; Linguistics and Communication; International and European Law; Biomedical Sciences; Molecular Mechanisms of Disease; Philosophy; Theology & Religious Studies; Biology; Chemistry; Computing Science; Mathematics; Medical Biology; Molecular Life Sciences; Physics & Astronomy; Science; Artificial Intelligence; Behavioural Science; Cognitive Neuroscience; and Social and Cultural Science.
The Masters scholarship consists of a partial tuition waiver and pays for visa and insurance. The tuition fee will be waived to € 2,083. For example, a grant holder in 2019/2020 will pay a tuition fee of only €2,083, instead of €11,466 or €12,640. The scholarship also covers costs such as those for visa, residence permit, health insurance and liability insurance (Aon Student Insurance). The Radboud Scholarship is not a full scholarship and does not include living costs. Scholars in a 2-year programme must pass all courses in the first year before qualifying for the scholarship in the 2nd year.
Applicants must hold non-EU/EEA passports and those who are not eligible for the lower EEA tuition fee for other reasons. They must have a Bachelors degree achieved outside the Netherlands, have no degrees obtained in the Netherlands and did not receive any prior education in the Netherlands. They must have a high level of proficiency in the English language. In order to be eligible for the scholarships, candidates must receive admission to the relevant degree programmes commencing 1 September 2019.
Applicants for the scholarships will be assessed on: talent, on whether they are expected to be promising students in their desired field of study at Radboud, on their proven academic quality, the quality of the recommendations in the 2 reference letters and the student’s motivation letter for the programme.
The Radboud Scholarship cannot be combined with the Orange Tulip Scholarship or Holland Scholarship. Candidates can apply for 2 scholarships, but only 1 will be granted.
Application for the Radboud Scholarship takes place at the same time as application for admission for the degree programmes. The deadline for online applications is 1 March 2019.
