    • Application deadline: 15 November
  • 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 tuition for a single course.

    To apply for a scholarship, you need to fill out our online scholarship application form before 15 November 2021. For your scholarship application, we request the following documents:

    • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
    • An essay that expresses your motivation and activities you’ve carried out that benefit your community/society as a whole (350-500 words). Please indicate:  
      - Why participation in this specific VU Graduate Winter School course is relevant to your personal, professional, and/or academic goals
      - How you will use the information you learn to make a positive impact in the future for both yourself and your community
    • Professional Letter of Reference including:  
      -    The employer’s experience working with you (either in an academic, professional, or volunteer setting) 
      -    Their motivation for recommending you for the scholarship 
      -    Contact information 

    Application procedure 
    Please submit the online scholarship application form and upload the relevant documents.  

    The results of the scholarship selection will be announced in the first week of December. 

    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!

Feel free to contact us anytime.
