Information

Value and purpose of grant

The Talent Grant amounts to 50 % of the tuition fee

Grant award period

1 september - 31 august

Application deadline 

01/03/2020

Extra facilities 

Please note: As the Talent Grant does not amount to a full scholarship, you should acquire additional funding in order to fully finance your study. One of the requirements for being granted a residence permit in the Netherlands is that students must submit proof that they have sufficient financial means to finance their study period in the Netherlands. The University of Groningen advises a budget, not including the tuition fee, of approx. € 10.000 to € 14.000 per year to cover the costs for rent, insurance, living expenses, course books and local transportation. How much money students actually spend will of course depend on their life style and spending habits.

Grant provider

Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

To apply for the Talent Grant, you should fill in the application form and add the following documents:

- Copy of your University of Groningen (conditional) admission letter to the two-year Research Master's programme in Theology and Religious Studies from the Admission Board;
- Recommendation letter by a PhD or Professor from your current/last degree programme;
- Transcript of Records from your current/last degree programme;
- Letter of motivation (in Word) of a maximum of 500 words, in which you indicate why you believe you should be considered for this grant;
