Conditions
  • You are registered as a full-time student at Radboud University
  • Your clinical placement will last at least 4 weeks (consecutively)
  • Your clinical placement will take place abroad
  • You have approval from the Faculty of Medical Sciences
  • You will be earning course credits
  • In your current study period, you have not already received an Individual Travel Grant for an extended stay, a grant for a clinical placement or a Holland Scholarship grant
  • You will be leaving in more than 2 weeks.

The grant is intended to compensate the extra expenses involved in a clinical placement abroad. Such expenses might include tickets, visum, accommodation rental and vaccinations. If none of these expenses are involved, you will not be eligible for this grant.

Amount of scholarship
Stay in Europe: €150 per 4 weeks, maximum for the whole period is €450 (12 weeks).
Stay outside Europe: €200 per 4 weeks, maximum for the whole period is €600 (12 weeks).

When the grant is provisionally awarded, an advance of 75% of the total amount will be transferred to your bank account within roughly 4 weeks. You will receive the remainder after your stay abroad has ended, as soon as you have submitted the last documents and met all conditions. If you don't meet all the conditions, you will have to repay the advance.

How to apply

1. Start your application for a stay abroad through your Osiris account. As soon as your faculty’s International Office has provisionally approved your application, you will automatically receive an email with further instructions for your grant application.

2. There is a link to a web form in the email with additional information about the grant application. Fill in the web form fully, and click on 'Submit'.

3. Roughly one working day after you have submitted the web form, we will send you an email containing the Grant Agreement and the Letter of Approval. You should then send the following documents to studentexchange [at] ru.nl (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl) no later than two weeks before your exchange is due to start:

  • The Grant Agreement, signed by you. Read that document carefully: it lists the conditions that have to be met for the grant application.
  • A Letter of Approval, filled in and signed by your study advisor at Radboud University or the International Office of RadboudUMC, indicating the relevance of the project to your study.

4. As soon as we've processed the documents, we'll send you an email about your application and whether it's been approved. It can take around 5 working days for your documents to be processed.

How to complete

Within one month of your clinical placement ending, we would like to receive from you the following documents, through studentexchange [at] ru.nl (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl):

  • A statement form, filled in and signed. You will receive the statement form by email a few weeks before the end of your stay.
  • An online student report with photos of your experience. You will receive the link to this report by email a few weeks before the end of your stay.

If you decide to travel afterwards, you are still responsible for getting the documents submitted on time. We will view your documents and if you meet the conditions, any remaining part of the grant will be transferred to your account as soon as possible. We will send you an email as soon as your final settlement is being processed.

Premature termination of stay

If, due to special circumstances, you are obliged to cut short your stay abroad, through no fault of your own, please get in touch with us through studentexchange [at] ru.nl (studentexchange[at]ru[dot]nl).

Deadline
One unconditional requirement for a grant application is that it must be submitted in full online and the necessary documents sent to Student Life and International Mobility at least 2 weeks before departure. If this is not the case, you will not be eligible for the grant. If there is a special reason for the late application, get in touch with us by email to studentexchange@ru.nl. We will then discuss your situation and let you know whether the deadline can be extended.

The grant applications are open every year somewhere around April for the subsequent academic year. So you will receive the email with further instructions for your grant application around April. If April has already passed or you're going abroad in the current academic year, you will receive the email with instructions for your grant application roughly one working day after your stay abroad has been approved in Osiris.
