The Fully Funded Radboud University Scholarship in Netherlands is open to all internationals who want to pursue a Master's degree. 

Radboud University wants to contribute to a healthy and free world with equal opportunities for all. We offer several full scholarships to allow all talented students to become part of our academic community, including students from non-EU/EEA countries who might be financially struggling to pay the institutional Radboud University tuition fee.

1. The scholarship also covers costs for a visa, residence permit, health insurance, and liability insurance for your stay in the Netherlands (Aon Student Insurance). You will find an indication of the costs of living and studying in the Netherlands on our website.

2. In case you are selected as a scholarship recipient and you are admitted to a two-year Master’s program, please note that to qualify for the grant again for the second year, you need to have passed all courses in the first year.

3. The Radboud Encouragement Scholarship cannot be combined with a Fulbright-Radboud or NL Scholarship. You can apply for more than one scholarship, but only one will be granted.

4. You can only apply for the Radboud Encouragement Scholarship or the partial Radboud Scholarship Programme. It is not possible to apply for both of these scholarships.

The Fully Funded Radboud University Scholarship in Netherlands covers the full tuition fee and living costs of €11,520 (as set by the IND, the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service, for 2023-2024) for the duration of the Master’s program.

How To Apply:

You can apply by indicating during your application for admission to a Master’s program in the OSIRIS Application system that you wish to apply for a Radboud Encouragement Scholarship. You will then be requested to upload two reference letters and a curriculum vitae (you may upload the same reference letters and CV if you have already uploaded those for your Master’s program application) and the scholarship motivation letter.

The selection for the scholarship and the admission to the Master’s program are two separate processes: admission to the Master’s program does not imply selection for the scholarship.

Please note that applicants for the Radboud Encouragement Scholarship are not automatically waived from having to pay the handling fee for the Master’s application. Once you enroll at Radboud University, the handling fee will be refunded.
