Radboud Scholarship Programme in English 2013/2014, Netherlands

Deadline: 1 March, 2013
Open to: talented prospective non-EEA students
Scholarship: not specified


The Radboud Scholarship Programme offers a selected number of talented prospective non-EEA students the opportunity to receive a scholarship to pursue a complete English-taught Master’s degree programme at Radboud University Nijmegen (of one or two whole years). The Radboud Scholarship Programme is very selective and is only intended for talented students who have obtained outstanding study results and are highly motivated to pursue a Master’s degree programme at Radboud University.


Candidates who want to become eligible for a Radboud Scholarship must meet the requirements for eligibility. This means that applicants should:
1. hold a non-EU/EEA passport and should not already be eligible for the lower EEA tuition fee.
2. have been fully admitted to the English-taught Master’s degree programme by the Student Affairs Office as stated in the formal letter of admission on behalf of the Executive Board.
3. be able to comply with the conditions for obtaining a visa for the Netherlands.
4. have been enrolled at Radboud University as a full-time student for the academic year and Master’s degree programme for which the scholarship will be awarded


Each year 20 Radboud Scholarships are awarded to selected talented non-EEA students for the duration of a Master’s degree programme. This means that the duration of the scholarship can vary: a one-year scholarship for a one-year programme and a two-year scholarship for a two-year programme.
The scholarship is not an amount of money that you will receive on your bank account but consists of a partial tuition waiver. The tuition fee will be waived to the level of an EEA student. Example: a grant holder in 2012/2013 pays a tuition fee of only  € 1,771,  instead of € 9,100, € 10,200 or € 16,450. In addition the Radboud Scholarship also covers costs such as for visa, residence permit,  health insurance and liability insurance.
In case of a two-year programme: to qualify for the grant during the second year, you need to have passed all courses in the first year.


You apply for a Radboud Scholarship by indicating on your Master’s application form for admission that you wish to apply for a Radboud Scholarship. The application for  admission and the application for the scholarship is fully integrated, there is no separate procedure for the scholarship.
Also your payment of the handling fee must has been received before this deadline. If the information is incomplete or the handling fee has not been received on this date, the application will automatically be rejected.
The Selection Committee of the Radboud Scholarship Programme will select the grant holders, based on a first nomination of the respective master’s programmes. You will be informed about the final decision with respect to your application for a Radboud Scholarship before 1 June 2013.
