Amount of scholarship
Scholarship worth
The scholarship amounts to € 5,000 (except for students from Turkey and Japan*). You will receive € 4,500 in two instalments of € 2,250 each in the first year of your master's studies. You will receive the remaining € 500 towards the end of your studies.
*Part of the scholarship is meant for tuition fees. Students from non-EEA countries like Turkey and Japan pay a much higher tuition fee than EEA students, therefore the scholarship for those students is larger (up to a maximum of € 20,000).
