Grants, funds and scholarships
If you’re going abroad for an internship or exchange, you may be eligible for a scholarshop or fund. ESA/IO manages some of these scholarships and funds. The employees can also inform you about other, external, funds.
VSBfonds provides annual scholarships for eager and motivated students who would like to go abroad to study or conduct research at an international university, after they have graduated from their bachelor’s or master’s program in the Netherlands. Every year, the TU/e recommends a few candidates (and an extra one). Would you like to be nominated for a VSBfonds scholarship? You have to graduate between March 1st, 2021, and December 31st, 2023. Your study abroad has to start after July 1st, 2023. Your application has to be submitted before March 1st, 2023. To be eligible for the VSBfonds Scholarship you must have the Dutch nationality or a strong tie with the Dutch society.
Contact person for VSBfonds scholarship is Petri van de Vorst.
The online system Mobility Online allows you to arrange everything that comes along with going abroad. Here’s where you can also apply for a TU/e coordinated scholarshop for your exchange or internship abroad.
Some external foundations and organizations require a recommendation letter from a student dean when applying for a scholarship. For more information, please contact Petri van de Vorst. She can also help you to obtain this letter.
