TSH Scholarships for Academic Excellence are awarded for one academic year. A TSH award of the Scholarship for the second and third years of the Bachelor’s program depends on your academic results.

Application procedure

  1. Download the Scholarship Application Form
  2. State in the application form that you graduated with an average result of at least 7.5 (out of 10) during your secondary education, by providing a transcript of records and/or proof that you belong to the top 10% of your class.

What happens next?

All TSH Scholarship for Academic Excellence applicants will be informed about the outcome of the Scholarship Selection Committee by the end of May 2015. Students who are granted a TSH Scholarship for Academic Excellence must comply with and confirm in writing their agreement to the terms and conditions attached to the scholarship prior to the granting of the scholarship.

Please note that the Scholarship Selection Committees usually receives more applications than it has grants, which means that they can only select a minority of excellent applicants who will receive financial support. Strong candidates who do not make it to the first group of Scholarship candidates will be put on a list of standby candidates. The School will notify these students as soon as possible – but not later than 1 August 2016 – in case a scholarship candidate withdraws their application.
