University of Groningen Talent Grant

Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies

The Talent Grant amounts to 50% of the annual tuition fee . The grant is awarded for the maximum duration of the Research Master’s degree programme (24 months).

One grant is available per year.

For whom?

Students from countries outside the EU/EEA who have been admitted to the Research Master's programme of the Graduate School of Theology and Religious Studies.

Terms and conditions:

  1. The applicant will hold a non-EU/EEA passport and will not be eligible for support under the Dutch system of study grants and loans ("Studiefinanciering")

  2. Scholarships will not be awarded to applicants who have already obtained a University of Groningen master’s degree or participate in another scholarship programme which covers tuition fee and/or living costs (e.g. Erasmus + /EMA 2/ NFP/ Erik Bleumink Fund).

  3. Students who are awarded a University of Groningen Talent Grant must confirm in writing their agreement with the terms and conditions of the grant.

Application deadline:

April 1


To apply for the scholarship, you should write a letter of motivation (in Word) of a maximum of 500 words, in which you indicate why you believe you should be considered for this scholarship. The Word document can then be attached to your application documents for the Research Master's programme for which you are applying.

Selection process:

A selection committee will review the applications. Students are selected on the basis of academic merit. Decisions as to eligibility for awarding a scholarship are made in April. Applicants will be informed around 15 May.

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.
