About the Colfuturo Scholarship
Tilburg University has an agreement with the Fundación para el Futuro de Colombia (COLFUTURO) to provide a mutual scholarship. Colfuturo is a non-profit organization supported by both private and public sectors. The institution offers loan-scholarships for Colombian citizens willing to study abroad
To all eligible students, Tilburg University offers a 30% discount on tuition fees over €10.000. Colfuturo will provide a loan/scholarship to cover the remainder of the tuition fees but also a living allowance of up to US$25,000 per year for a maximum of two years per eligible student. Whether Colfuturo will provide you a loan or scholarship depends on your personal situation. Please check www.colfuturo.org for more information.
