The Radboud University Medical Center Study Fund is a scholarship for excellent students applying for the Master’s programmes in Biomedical Sciences(verwijst naar een andere website) or Molecular Mechanisms of Disease. The scholarship is highly selective with only about 5% of applicants obtaining one.
The Radboud University Medical Center Study Fund, or Radboudumc Studyfund, aims to provide very promising students without sufficient financial means the opportunity to complete one of our master’s programme, and possibly enroll in the PhD programme afterwards.
Therefore, The Radboudumc Studyfund offers the following scholarships for our Master’s:
- Molecular Mechanisms of Disease: 3 full scholarships (combined with a partial scholarship from the Radboud Scholarship Programme or Organge Tulip Scholarships, this covers tuition fee and living expenses)
- Biomedical Sciences: 5 partial scholarships (combined with a partial scholarship from the Radboud Scholarship Programme or Organge Tulip Scholarships, this covers tuition fee and half of the living expenses)
The scholarships are offered to our most excellent international applicants. Eligibility for a study fund scholarship depends on the interview results, the results from your previous education, and (if applicable) your work experience. Scholarship candidates must prove they rank among the best 20% of their class.
