Radboud Scholarship Programme at Radboud University, Netherlands for 2024

Radboud University is accepting applications for its partially funded Radboud Scholarship Programme.

About Radboud University and Scholarship

The city of Nijmegen has a long history of university formation. Originally known as the Kwartierlijke Academie van Nijmegen, the first University of Nijmegen was established in 1655. Students gained expertise in the conventional legal, medical, and religious domains. The Kwartierlijke Academie ended in 1680, despite its accomplishments as an institution. The French invasion of the Netherlands in 1672 and subsequent plague epidemics were too much for the university to overcome.

The Radboud Scholarship Programme has a high level of selection. It provides brilliant, highly motivated non-EEA students with exceptional study outcomes with the chance to be granted a scholarship for the full Master’s degree program at Radboud University, taught entirely in English. Several partial scholarships are given out each year under the Radboud Scholarship Program for the length of an English-taught Master’s degree program (not including joint-degree and Erasmus Mundus Master’s programs).
