Utrecht University UES – Law, Economics and Governance International Talent Scholarship – Netherlands

Utrecht University UES – Law, Economics and Governance International Talent Scholarship – Netherlands

Aim and Benefits of Utrecht University International Talent Scholarship

  1. For students who will have to pay the statutory tuition fee (mainly EU/EEA student): €11.000
  2. For students who will have to pay the institutional tuition fee (most non EU/EEA students): tuition fee + €11.000

In a 2-year’s Master’s programme the scholarship will only be renewed for the second year if awardee is making satisfactory progress towards the degree.

Requirements for Utrecht University International Talent Scholarship Qualification

If you are an eligible candidate you will be selected for a scholarship on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Your academic quality and results of the preceding education, as evidence, for example, by grades, test scores, publications, letters of recommendation;
  2. Your career vision, promise in the proposed field of study;
  3. Your societal engagement (e.g. extracurricular activities)
  4. The quality and relevance of your motivation letter for the Master’s programme;
  5. The quality of the application itself (completeness, accuracy, consistency)

In order to be awarded this scholarship you should:

  1. Hold a non-Dutch secondary education degree;
  2. Have been admitted to one of the English taught Master’s programmes of the Graduate School of Law, Economics and Governance with a start date of 1 September 2021;
  3. Be able to comply with the conditions to obtain a Dutch visa if applicable;

Failure to meet one or more of these criteria automatically means you are not eligible for this scholarship.

Application Deadline

January 31, 2021

How to Apply

Interested and qualified? Go to Utrecht University on osiris.uu.nl to apply

Students who apply for a UES will automatically be considered for a UES-LEGITS. Students who are not eligible for a UES (e.g. because they hold a EU/EER citizenship) can be eligible for a UES-LEGITS.

  1. Submit an application for a Master’s programme; if you do not do this first, your UES-LEGITS or UES application will be deleted without notice.
  2. After submitting an application for a Master’s programme, you can go to Osiris Online Application.
  3. Log in with your Osiris username and password.
  4. Click on the link ‘New application’.

Answer the UES questions and upload the requested document(s).
Important notes:

  1. In contrast with a regular UES, for UES-LEGITS a top 10% ranking of your graduation class is not a criterium.
  2. Students who apply for UES-LEGITS only (e.g. because they hold a EU/EEA citizenship) must upload a general recommendation letter instead, when asked for proof of top 10% ranking. The general recommendation letter can be the same one as used in the Master’s application.
  3. EU/EEA students who do have a top 10% ranking proof should also upload this as well because they may then qualify for both, UES and UES-LEGITS. Without this proof an application is for UES-LEGITS only.
  4. EU/EEA students can ignore non-eligibility messages related to non-EU/EEA citizenship
  5. Submit your application.

You will not be informed whether you have been awarded the scholarship prior to the scholarship deadline and not before you have been (un)conditionally admitted to the programme.
