The VU Fellowship Programme (VUFP) is a scholarship for strongly motivated students with excellent study results.
Eligible candidates must be able to prove their academic excellence, must be admitted to a preselected Master’s degree at VU University, do not have the Dutch nationality and have not graduated from a Dutch higher education programme.
Students following a one-year Master’s programme may not apply for the VUFP scholarship for a second year. Students already enrolled in a two-year Master’s programme who have not been awarded a VUFP scholarship in 2012/2013 are not eligible to apply for the VUFP scholarship 2013/2014.
The VUFP scholarship covers your tuition fee, and provides for an allowance towards study and living costs (paid out in 3 installments over the year). Please note that the scholarship does not cover all your living expenses.
There are two variations of the VUFP scholarship:
- €5.000 to students paying the tuition fee for EEA students
- €15.000 to students paying the tuition fee for non-EEA students
