Radboud Scholarship Programme

Each year 20 Radboud Scholarships are awarded to selected talented non-EEA students for the duration of an English-taught Master’s degree programme at Radboud University Nijmegen. The duration of the scholarship can vary from: a one-year scholarship for a one-year programme and a two-year scholarship for a two-year programme.
