Graduate Scholarship - How does it work?

The applications for postgraduate scholarships for candidates from developing countries must be submitted on specific application forms.

The Council for Development Cooperation (COS: "Commissie voor Ontwikkelingssamenwerking") makes a selection of the applications based in part on the recommendations obtained from a working group of this Council and proceeds to formulate well-founded recommendations to the Executive Committee of the university.

The recommendation is based on:

  • the qualifications of the applicant
  • the relevance of the postgraduate study to the student’s country of origin
  • the validation of the knowledge in the student’s country of origin
  • the motivation of the applicant
  • the student’s nationality. In the event of equal rankings on
  • the basis of the quality of the file, priority will be given to the categories on the DAC List of Aid Recipients with the lowest level of development and income.
