Level and duration of the scholarship
The scholarship is not an amount of money that you will receive in your bank account, but consists of a partial tuition waiver. The tuition fee will be waived to the level of an EEA student. For example: a grant holder in 2017/2018 will pay a tuition fee of only €2,006, instead of €9,432 or €10,360. In addition the Radboud Scholarship also covers costs such as those for visa, residence permit, health insurance and liability insurance. This amounts to about €725.

In the case of a two-year programme: to qualify for the grant during the second year, you need to have passed all courses in the first year.
