The Radboud Scholarship Programme offers talented prospective international (non-EEA) students the opportunity to receive a scholarship to pursue a complete English-taught Master’s degree programme at Radboud University Nijmegen (of one or two whole years). 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.
Each year 20 Radboud Scholarships are awarded to selected talented non-EEA students for the duration of a Master’s degree programme. This means that the duration of the scholarship can vary: a one-year scholarship for a one-year programme and a two-year scholarship for a two-year programme.
Worth of 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. Example: a grant holder in 2013/2014 pays a tuition fee of only  € 1,835,  instead of € 9,318 or € 10,260. In addition the Radboud Scholarship also covers costs such as for visa, residence permit,  health insurance and liability insurance. This amounts to about € 1,000.
