Amount of scholarship
Selected students are awarded a scholarship up to a maximum of 17 000 euro for two years (Prestige Master�s) or a maximum of 16 500 for three years (University College Utrecht). Students should be aware that the grant is not a full scholarship � the Utrecht Excellence Scholarship is a significant contribution towards the costs of the tuition fee. It is necessary to find additional funding to be able to finance study and stay completely. As one of the requirements for being granted a residence permit in the Netherlands, students from abroad must prove to the IND (immigration and naturalisation office) that they have sufficient financial means. The University advises a budget, not including the tuition fee, of 10 000 to 14 000 euro per year to cover costs for rent, insurance, living expenses, course books and local transportation alone.

The applicant must meet the eligibility criteria in order to be considered for this scholarship. The applicant should:

1. Hold a non-EEA passport and not be eligible for support under the Dutch system of study grants and loans ("Studiefinanciering")
2. . Have been admitted to one of the international Prestige Master's programmes of Utrecht University or to University College Utrecht.
3. Hold a non-Dutch relevant Bachelor�s degree or equivalent thereof.
4. Be able to comply with the conditions to obtain a Dutch visa. Failure to meet one or more of these criteria automatically means the student is not eligible for a scholarship.

Selection criteria
Eligible candidates are selected for a scholarship on the basis of the following criteria:

1. Their academic excellence and promise in the proposed field of study;
2. The academic quality and results of the preceding education, as evidenced, for example, by grades, test scores, publications, letters of recommendation;
3. The quality and relevance of the motivation letter (academic content, intercultural and communication skills, personal motivation);

The selected candidates will be offered an Utrecht Excellent Scholarship together with their notification for admission.

Students starting their Prestige Master's Programmes in February 2007 are not eligible for the Utrecht Excellence Scholarships.
