Philip Hans Franses Scholarship

The Philip Hans Franses scholarship is meant for an excellent student from a non-EEA country who wants to make a difference. The scholarship entails that for the duration of the study, with a maximum of 3 years (4 years for a Double bachelor BSc2 student), the student will receive a waiver of the tuition fee, meaning that the student will only have to pay the low statutory fee (€ 2.143) instead of the high institutional fee (€ 9.300).
