Radboud Scholarship Programme: Application for RSP for 2016/2017 is now open. The Radboud Scholarship Programme offers a select 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.

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.

Scope of the scholarships

Level and duration of the scholarship

The scholarship is not an amount of money that you will receive in your bank account, but 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.

In the 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.

Eligibility/ requirements

You will only be eligible to obtain a Radboud Scholarship if you:

  1. hold a non-EU/EEA passport
  2. are not eligible for the lower EEA tuition fee for other reasons
  3. you have (will obtain) a Bachelor’s degree achieved outside the Netherlands and have no degrees achieved in the Netherlands
  4. have been fully admitted to the English-taught Master’s degree programme starting September 1, 2016 as stated in the formal letter of admission
  5. are able to comply with the conditions for obtaining a visa for the Netherlands
  6. are 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

Selection criteria

From the eligible candidates the Radboud Scholarship holders will be selected based on the following criteria:

  1. Talent: this means that you must have outstanding study results in your present field of study
  2. You are expected to be a promising student in your desired field of study at Radboud University
  3. Proven academic quality and good results of your prior education for example through grades, test scores, publications
  4. Quality of the recommendations in the two reference letters
  5. Motivation: based on your motivation letter for the Master’s progamme

Application procedure and documents required

The application for admission and the application for the scholarship is fully integrated, there is no separate application 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.
