How to apply for a UG PhD Scholarship

The University of Groningen (UG) offers scholarships to talented students who would like to pursue a PhD. In the UG PhD Scholarship Programme, prospective PhD students are invited to write their own PhD research proposal in collaboration with an expert PhD supervisor of the University of Groningen with whom the students would like to work. Click here for more information about the programme.

There are two types of scholarships within the programme:

  • full scholarship: a grant of 1700 EUR netto per month;
  • supplemental scholarship: students who have acquired a scholarship from a foreign government/foundation that is lower than 1700 EUR per month can get a supplemental monthly grant from the University of Groningen.

How to apply for a full scholarship?

Available scholarships will be posted on the vacancies webpage of the university. Most of these scholarships are offered by our research institutes. Institutes may provide more information about if and when scholarships will become available on their webpages.

How to apply for a supplemental scholarship?

Students who come to the University of Groningen with a competitive scholarship from the government of their home country (e.g. scholarships from CSC, LPDP, Conacyt) will receive a supplemental scholarship from the University of Groningen if their own scholarship is lower than 1700 euro a month (this policy comes in the place of the Accommodation Scheme for Selected Bursary Students). To obtain a PhD position with us, the first step is to find a prospective supervisor. You can find more information about potential supervisors on the webpages of the research institute that fits your research interests.
