The VU Fellowship Programme (VUFP) is a highly selective scholarship for strongly motivated students with excellent study results. The application is open to international students enrolling in preselected master’s degree programmes at VU University starting September 2012, and international students enrolling in the bachelor’s degree programme International Business Administration, starting September 2012.
Duration and number of scholarships
Selected students will receive a scholarship for the duration of the degree programme. However, the scholarship will only be renewed if the student is making satisfactory progress towards the degree.
Amount of scholarship
There are two amounts for the VUFP scholarship:
· €5000 for EU-students
· €15000 for non-EU-students
Please note - these amounts will almost certainly not be enough to cover all the costs of studying and living in the Netherlands!
The applicant must meet the eligibility criteria in order to be considered for this scholarship:
· Not have the Dutch nationality;
· Enrolling in an international master's programme, as preselected by the faculty, or IBA;
· Hold a relevant bachelor's degree (for a master's programme) or secondary school diploma (for IBA);
· Be able to comply with the condition to obtain a Dutch visa.
Failure to meet one or more of these criteria means automatically that the student is not eligible for a VUFP scholarship.
Please note - you do not have to get admission to a programme to start your VUFP application. Selection will only take place after admission.
Deadline for application is 1 March 2012.
