About the Philip Hans Franses Scholarship
This unique scholarship entails that for the duration of the bachelor studies the recipient receives a waiver of the tuition fee, meaning that the student will only have to pay the low statutory fee. The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area, who have achieved excellent study results during their secondary school education. As a token of appreciation, the scholarship is named after Professor Philip Hans Franses, who dedicated 12 years of his career to leading Erasmus School of Economics. On 31 January 2019, he stepped down as dean but has continued to be both Professor of Applied Econometrics and Professor of Marketing Research.
