EUC Scholarship

Scholarship amount

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.

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. Scholarships will be awarded as a waiver of the tuition fee, there will be no transfer of funds to the applicant's bank account.

Application criteria

  • You are applying for the bachelor’s programme Liberal Arts & Sciences at Erasmus University College;
  • You lack sufficient financial means to pay for your study at EUC;
  • Open to all applicants, regardless of nationality;

Deadlines 

Half of the scholarships will be distributed by the early application deadline (1 January 2018). The remaining half will be allocated after the normal application deadline (15 April 2018). Therefore, it is imperative that you submit your full scholarship application before the relevant deadline.

How to Apply

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

  1. Complete your application for Erasmus University College by following the regular procedure.
  2. Indicate your need for financial assistance and interest in the scholarship by completing the application form and send it to the Scholarship Committee: scholarships@euc.eur.nl.
  3. Following your admission to Erasmus University College, you will be asked to provide documentation to substantiate your need for financial assistance.

The EUC Scholarship Committee will review all complete and eligible applications for a scholarship. Should an EUC Scholarship be granted you will receive this decision as soon as possible but no later than July 1st, 2018.

Scholarship Conditions

An EUC Scholarship can only be granted to an applicant, who actually enrols at EUC. Formally an EUC Scholarship is therefor granted under the condition of enrolment at EUC. The applicants are strongly advised to adher 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%).
Students who receive a scholarship 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.

To be clear: an EUC Scholarship will never concern a transfer of funds from EUC to a grantee, it can only be effected as a reduction of the tuition fee to be paid by a grantee for studying at EUC.
