EUC Scholarship

The EUC Scholarship is for highly qualified students from any country who can prove that they require financial aid to be able to study at EUC.

Scholarship amount

The amount awarded will be a minimum of € 1,000 and a maximum of € 6,000 per year depending on the applications we receive each year. EUC reserves the right to determine the amount awarded within those parameters.

Application criteria

  • You have applied for the bachelor’s programme Liberal Arts & Sciences at Erasmus University College for 2019-2020;
  • You meet the application criteria to study at EUC;
  • You lack sufficient financial means to pay for your study at EUC;
  • You are able to provide EUC’s Scholarship Committee with specific information concerning your financial situation;

Deadlines 

The application deadline for the EUC Scholarship is 1 May 2019.
The aim of the Scholarship Committee is to distribute half of the scholarships by the early application deadline (1 December 2018), and the other half after the normal application deadline (15 April 2019). Therefore, it is imperative that you submit your full scholarship application before the relevant deadline.

How to Apply

You can apply for the EUC Scholarship by taking the following steps:

  1. Complete your application for Erasmus University College by following the regular procedure, honoring the application deadlines (1 December 2018 or 15 April 2019).
  2. Complete the EUC Scholarship application form and email it to the Scholarship Committee: scholarships@euc.eur.nl before 1 May 2019.

Students will be notified of the Scholarship Committee's decision before 1 June 2019.

Scholarship Conditions

Grantees are at all times expected to inform the Scholarship Committee about substantial improvements of their financial situation. Scholarships can then be adjusted in value or withdrawn and spent on other students in need.

Grantees agree to assist EUC’s Marketing, Recruitment, Admission & Integration team in the role of Ambassador with promotional and support activities for approximately 8 hours per month during the academic year.

An EUC Scholarship can only be granted to an applicant, who actually enrols at EUC. Formally, an EUC Scholarship is, therefore, granted under the condition of enrolment at EUC. The applicants are strongly advised to adhere to the deadlines set by EUC for accepting the offer to enrol and taking care of all administrative steps to conclude enrolment. Failure to do so might cause EUC to revoke the EUC Scholarship, which can then be made available to another eligible applicant.

Grantees will in principle be eligible for a tuition fee waiver during three years of study at EUC. EUC however reserves the right to revoke or reduce a tuition fee waiver in case a grantee falls out of good academic standing (e.g. by failing the GPA requirement while not adhering to the required study plan) and/or good social standing (e.g. by misconduct).

Grantees are furthermore required to remain enrolled at EUC to keep their scholarship. When a grantee prematurely ends enrolment (for whatever reason), the scholarship will be recalculated (e.g. stopping six months early in an academic year would reduce the tuition fee waiver for that academic year by 50%).

The EUC Scholarship will be awarded as a waiver of the tuition fee; there will be no transfer of fund.
