  • Equal Access Scholarship

    We would like to offer all those interested in joining our VU Graduate Winter School the opportunity to do so, regardless of background or status. To make this possible, we offer a scholarship that covers the full tuition for a single course.

    To apply for this scholarship you will need to upload the following:

    • Curriculum Vitae (CV) including: contact information, work experience, education, skills, languages, and any additional relevant information.
    • Answers to these questions: Why are you interested in joining VU Graduate Winter School?, What’s your motivation for selecting this course?, How will you use the knowledge you acquired to make a positive impact for both yourself and your community? and Why do you deserve this scholarship? 
    • Professional/Academic Letter of Reference including:  
      -    The advisor’s, supervisor’s or employer’s experience working with you experience working with you (either in an academic, professional, or volunteer setting) 
      -    Their motivation for recommending you for the scholarship 
      -    Contact information 
    • Proof of enrolment, diploma or transcript of records 

    The questions will be graded according to this system, that takes into consideration the potential, originality, enthusiasm, and overall suitability of the student.  

    Application procedure 

    You can apply to the scholarship via this form. 

    The deadline to apply for the scholarship is 15 November. The results of the scholarship selection will be announced mid-December latest.

    Since we have a limited number of scholarships available and a large volume of applicants, we suggest - if possible - that you make the payment the moment you apply to guarantee your place in the course. If you are granted the scholarship, your tuition fee will be reimbursed. 

    However, if you can’t attend the winter school without the scholarship, you can wait until the announcement. 

We are here to help!
