The Radboud Scholarship Programme offers talented, highly motivated students from countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) with the opportunity to complete an English-taught master’s degree program at Radboud University, in the Netherlands.

Each year 12 full scholarships and a number of partial scholarships are awarded for the duration of one of the English-taught master’s degree programs (with the exception of Erasmus Mundus Master’s programs, joint-degree master’s programs, and the master’s program in theology). 

A full scholarship covers the tuition fee of €16,000 and living costs of €10,800, as set by the Dutch Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) for 2021/2022. A partial scholarship will substantially reduce the tuition fee. In 2021/2022, partial scholarship holders will pay a tuition fee of only €2,168 instead of €16,000.

– Both full and partial scholarships cover costs for a visa, residence permit, health insurance and liability insurance for the stay in the Netherlands.

– Scholarship recipients who are admitted to a two-year program must pass all courses in their first year in order to qualify for the grant again for the second year.

– The Radboud Scholarship cannot be combined with the Fulbright-Radboud Scholarship, Orange Tulip Scholarship or Holland Scholarship. Students can apply for more than one scholarship, but only one will be granted.

Deadlines: 1 March 2021 


Students can apply for the Radboud Scholarship if :

– They hold a non-EU/EEA passport.

– They are not eligible for the lower EEA tuition fee for other reasons.

– They have (or will obtain) a bachelor’s degree achieved outside the Netherlands, have no degrees achieved in the Netherlands and did not receive any previous education in the Netherlands (exchange programs excluded, provided that they are part of the bachelor’s degree achieved outside the Netherlands).

– They meet the English-language proficiency requirement for the master’s degree program of their choice.

– They have been fully admitted to their chosen English-taught master’s degree program starting 1 September 2021, as stated in the formal letter of admission.

– They are able to comply with the conditions for obtaining a visa for the Netherlands.

– They are enrolled at Radboud University as a full-time student for the academic year and the master’s degree program for which the scholarship will be awarded.

How to apply

Applications for the scholarship and applications to a master’s degree program are both made through the OSIRIS Application system. Students may indicate in their application to a master’s degree program that they also wish to apply for a Radboud Scholarship. They will then be requested to upload three additional documents: two reference letters and a curriculum vitae, if they have not already done so for the master’s degree program application.

The selection for the scholarship and the admission to the master’s degree program are two separate processes: admission to a master’s degree program does not imply selection for the scholarship. It is not possible to apply for the full scholarship separately, but students apply for both the full and partial scholarship when they apply for the Radboud Scholarship Programme.
