In case you are selected as a scholarship recipient and you are admitted to a two-year Master’s programme: to qualify for the grant again for the second year, you need to have passed all courses in the first year.
The Radboud Scholarship cannot be combined with the Radboud Encouragement Scholarship, or Fulbright-Radboud Scholarship. If eligible, you may apply for more than one scholarship, but only one scholarship will be granted. However, please note that you cannot apply for both the Radboud Scholarship Programme and Radboud Encouragement Scholarship, you can only apply for one of these two.
Application Deadline: January 31, 2024

A Radboud Scholarship will reduce your tuition fee to €2.530,-. For example: a grant holder in 2024/2025 will pay a tuition fee of only €2.530,- instead of €17,000.

The costs of living and studying in the Netherlands are not covered by the scholarship.
