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.
