About Radboud University and Scholarship

In Nijmegen, the Netherlands, there is a public research university called Radboud University (abbreviated as RU; Dutch: Radboud Universiteit, originally Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen). Saint Radboud, a 9th-century Dutch bishop renowned for his learning and assistance to the poor, is the namesake of the institution.

Since its founding in 1923, four prominent university rating tables have continuously ranked Radboud University among the top 150 universities worldwide. In the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities as of 2020, it is ranked 105th. RU is renowned around the globe for producing high-caliber research. In 2020 8,396 scientific publications were published and 391 PhD degrees were conferred. In 2016, Radboud University became a member of the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities to support the global flow of academic information.


The green campus of Radboud University is well-known and frequently ranked as one of the most beautiful in the Netherlands. Seven faculties on campus carry out both teaching and research. The campus is situated in Nijmegen’s southern Heyendaal area. The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, a top-notch research facility devoted to the study of human language and communication, is located on the site in addition to these faculties.

By offering financial support for study, research, and teaching, the Fulbright Commission seeks to foster understanding between Dutch and American residents. A candidate must be an American citizen, be admitted to Radboud University Nijmegen, have outstanding academic records, participate in extracurricular activities, and meet other requirements to be eligible for a scholarship.
