Research Master Scholarship

Tilburg University highly values the Research Master's programs we offer. The Research Master is seen as a first step into a research career and could end up in a PhD position at Tilburg University or any other university. Besides an academic career, some Research Master's students end up at research intensive organizations. In order to stimulate students to choose a Research Master's program, Tilburg University offers a very attractive waiver.

Students do not need to apply for this scholarship

All non-EU students admitted to a Research Master's program will receive a partial tuition fee waiver automatically. This waiver covers the two years of the Research Master. 

Scholarship value

Students who got admitted to a Research Master's program will pay the statutory fee instead of the institutional fee. In practice this means that you will pay the statutory fee of approx. € 2,250 per year instead of the higher non-EEA institutional fee of € 15,100 for the academic year 2023-2024.
