  • The student’s career vision, promise in the proposed field of study;

  • Hold a non-Dutch secondary education degree;
  • Have been admitted to one of the Master’s programmes mentioned above;

Eligible Nationalities: Students from non-Dutch nationality are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme.

Application Procedure: Students who wish to be considered for the scholarship have to apply for admission to the programme before 1 February.

Applications arriving after the 1 February deadline will not be considered for a scholarship in the Master’s programme that starts the next academic year.
