The faculty of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Groningen offers several Talent Grants and Scholarships for talented (PhD) students.
Please note: As the Talent Grants and Holland Scholarship do 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.
For additional funding options, you can check the UG Grantfinder.
Other Financial Matters
The University of Groningen has a special website with more information on practical financial matters such as tuition fees, USA and UK loan programmes, living expenses, and opening a Dutch bank account.
