Please indicate in your motivation letter that you previously completed a semester or full academic year at VU Amsterdam via the Semester in Amsterdam program.

Selection process:

The Central VUFP Committee decides which students will be offered a VUFP scholarship. All VUFP applications received by 1 February 2020 will be reviewed by the faculty of the applied-for Master’s program. Faculties then nominate applicants to the central scholarship committee, which subsequently awards scholarships to the most talented students. The award is based on the motivation letter, the quality of previous education and the student's academic performance therein. The Committee makes a merit-based selection. A scholarship offer will be made to successful candidates.

Scholarship amount:

The VUFP scholarship covers the tuition fees. VUFP scholarship does not provide any additional allowance towards study or living costs.
