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. The Radboud Scholarship Programme is very selective and is only intended for talented students who have obtained outstanding academic achievements and are highly motivated to pursue a Master’s degree programme at Radboud University.

The Radboud International Scholarship Programme 2016

Areas of study
Eligible English-taught Master’s Degree Programme offered by the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Philosophy, Theology & Religious Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Medical Sciences, and Faculty of Law.

The scholarship consists of a partial tuition waiver. The tuition fee will be waived to the level of an EEA student. For example: a grant holder in 2015/2016 will pay a tuition fee of only € 1,951, instead of € 9,685 or € 10,633. In addition the Radboud Scholarship also covers costs such as those for visa, residence permit, health insurance and liability insurance. This amounts to about € 700.

Each year about 30 Radboud Scholarships are awarded to selected talented non-EEA students for the duration of one of the Master’s degree programmes listed here.

  • Proven academic quality and good results of your prior education for example through grades, test scores, publications

Application
The application for admission and the application for the scholarship is fully integrated, there is no separate procedure for the scholarship. However, the selection for RSP and the admission to the Master’s degree programme are two seperate processes. Admission to the programme does not imply selection for RSP. You apply for a Radboud Scholarship by indicating during your application for admission that you wish to apply for a Radboud Scholarship. You will then be requested to upload three additional documents: two reference letters and a curriculum vitae.
