ANID - Becas Chile

Over the years, the University of Groningen has welcomed several Chilean students who were supported by the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID) under their Becas Chile program.

Candidates who secure funding from ANID are also eligible for our top-up program.

To apply for a ANID scholarship, you will probably need a Letter of Acceptance (LoA). How to get a LoA from the UG? Consult our webpage for scholarship PhDs.

ANID's call for applications for Chilean nationals to apply for full PhD studies abroad is generally published each calendar year. To learn about future calls for applications keep an eye on the ANID website.
