Understanding Society

Tilburg University is convinced that it can contribute to solving social issues by developing and transferring knowledge and bringing together people from various disciplines and organizations.


If you would like to partner with Tilburg University, there are several avenues from which to choose.

You could sponsor one of the ongoing projects of the Tilburg University Fund. Your financial support could provide the input to help a particular project reach its potential. Other projects are still waiting for funding; your donation could provide the impulse to get one of them up and running.

Another possibility for giving to Tilburg University involves creating your own "named fund", or establishing a special chair to enable research in a certain area with which you have an affinity. Read more about endowment possibilities by clicking on this link: Giving

Corporate sponsors

Investment through Tilburg University's scholarship program: Creating opportunities for talented young graduate students Is your company seeking a way to express its commitment to social involvement? And do you desire to invest in knowledge creation? Would you like your investment to have long-term benefit to society? Tilburg University Fund's scholarship program offers you an excellent opportunity. Financial support of this program makes it possible for foreign graduate students to come and study in Tilburg-young students lacking the means themselves to finance the costs of a Masters program.

Your partnership with the University in this program expresses concretely and directly your company's involvement in societal development. For the talented student in question, your sponsorship represents a chance to develop further his or her talents. These carefully selected, highly motivated students are an important asset to the university, enriching not only our academic program and research, but also our culture.

In short, Tilburg University's scholarship program offers a resounding 'win'-not only for the talented graduate student, but also for the university and for you, the corporate sponsor.

For all masters programs at Tilburg University, the scholarship program offers the following:

  • €10,000 per year for outstanding students from within the EU
  • €20,000 per year for outstanding students from countries outside the EU

These scholarships cover the costs of tuition, room and board, insurance and visa.
