Tilburg University Scholarship Programme
For the year 2010-2011 Tilburg University has quite a number of scholarships available for excellent international students who are admitted to a Master’s programme at Tilburg University (MA, MSc or LLM).
Tilburg University Scholarships include (for the academic year 2010-2011):
* In almost all cases a partial tuition waiver; students pay only a fee of a maximum of € 2,550; for most of the programmes this implies a fee reduction of € 7,956
* In many cases a certain budget for the covering of living expenses for one academic year.
To qualify for a Tilburg University Scholarship, candidates must fulfil the following admission requirements, on top of the regular requirements for being admitted to a Master’s programme:
* Candidates must have graduated with excellent results in their (under)graduate programme.
* Candidates should provide at least two independent letters of reference.
* Candidates must have been admitted to one of the graduate programmes at Tilburg University.
* Candidates must be able to comply with the conditions to obtain a Dutch visa (see here for more information).
Candidates are encouraged to apply for external scholarships like Huygens Scholarship Programme, Bappenas and Stuned as well. If a student receives an external scholarship, fully covering tuition waiver and living expenses, the Tilburg University Scholarship will be canceled. If an external scholarship would be less than a Tilburg University Scholarship, the Tilburg University Scholarship can be awarded partially.
When you apply for a Master’s programme at Tilburg University you will automatically be considered for the Tilburg University Scholarship Programme. The application deadline for Master’s programmes is April 15th, 2010.
Tilburg University Scholarships are awarded for one academic year. Candidates applying for one of the Research Master programmes have to apply for the scholarship again for their second year of the Research Master programme.
If the student should leave the programme prematurely, Tilburg University reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship.
