For example: a grant holder in 2017/2018 will pay a tuition fee of only €2,006, instead of €9,432 or €10,360.
In addition, the Radboud Scholarship also covers costs such as those for visa, residence permit, health insurance and liability insurance. This amounts to about € 725.
In the case of a two-year programme: to qualify for the grant during the second year, you need to have passed all courses in the first year.
