Do you consider yourself a global citizen?
Each year, a maximum of three (one-time) scholarships each worth EUR 5,000 are available to prospective master students. We are seeking intelligent, talented and ambitious people who view themselves as citizens of the world.
You are eligible for a World Citizen Talent Scholarship if you:
- Come from outside The Netherlands and don’t live in the Netherlands.
- Are enrolling for the first time at The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
- Have never applied for this scholarship before.
- Have been conditionally accepted as a student (also-called offer of student position) on or before 31 March for the upcoming academic year.
Apply for the Master programme of your choice by using the online application tool.
Write an essay (in English, 950 to 1100 words ) explaining why and how you can contribute to the multinational, multicultural beehive that is The Hague University of Applied Sciences and how you can contribute to the programme of your choice. Please read our essay guidelines and information on the assessment procedure below before you start writing.
Submit your essay by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention your name and student number in the essay. Please mention WCTS and your student number in the email subject. The deadline for submitting your essay is March 31st 2020.
Scholarship assessments and results
We have appointed a committee to judge all essays. The judges will select the three students whose essays will have impressed them most to receive the scholarship. The decision of the jury is binding and you will be informed about it via email before 15 May.
Please note that you will only be awarded the scholarship after you have been conditionally accepted and have met all terms and conditions of enrolment. Once the scholarship has been definitively awarded, the relevant amount (€ 5000) will be waived from the tuition fee as being the last instalment.
By submitting your essay, you are giving us the right to publish it, if we wish to. Scholarship winners are also expected to participate actively in the programme and its evaluations, become an ambassador of the Master programmes, and contribute to the internationalisation of our institution.
