Attractive careers in the technological heart of the Netherlands

The scholarship program
The scholarship covers a period of five years: two years studying for your Master’s degree at TU/e and three years working for the company that sponsors your scholarship. In this way you will also gain international work experience and increase your career opportunities.
The scholarships will be awarded to highly talented international students who have an excellent academic record, a high score in the selection tests and in English proficiency.
The TU/e will match your academic background and particular skills to the requirements of the international organizations funding your scholarship.
The ALSP scholarship consists of a tuition fee waiver and a contribution to living expenses of 5,000 euro for both of the two years of the Master’s program. This is not a full cost scholarship. During the three years of your career launching experience, you will earn a competitive salary.
You automatically enter the selection for ALSP if you are admitted to a TU/e Master’s program having submitted your application before the scholarship deadline of February 1, 2013.
