The University Twente Scholarship (UTS) is a scholarship for outstanding students from EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA countries attempting to apply to the University of Twente for a graduate program (MSc). Students are paid between € 3,000 and € 22,000 per year.

In the case of a two-year study program, students can receive an extra UTS equal to the first year’s UTS to cover the costs of the second year. However, the scholarship will only be extended during the second year if students meet the UTS requirements.

Roskilde University offers a variety of Danish state tuition fee waivers and scholarships to talented young and exceptional students from nations outside of the EU/EEA who are obligated to pay tuition fees at Roskilde University in Denmark. 

Applicants from non-EU/EAA countries can clearly state that they want to be considered for the scholarships during the application process, as long as they are applying for an eligible master’s degree program.

These tuition fee waivers and scholarships are made available by the Danish government once a year to students who apply for study in September. For programs beginning in September, beneficiaries will receive these awards for a maximum of 22 months.

To be qualified for a tuition fee waiver and scholarship, you must be a non-EU/EEA citizen who must pay tuition fees and apply to one of the master’s programs that offer scholarships.

Please keep in mind that being eligible to apply for a tuition fee waiver and scholarship does not assure that you will be granted one, as there is only a limited number available. Academic performance, motivational letters, and work experience are used to rank applicants. There is no consideration for family or social background.

The university chooses specific master’s programs that may offer one or more tuition fee waivers and scholarships prior to each admission round.

You apply for admission to the master’s programs by uploading a letter and CV highlighting your academic and professional experiences to your online application by the application deadlines.

Emile Boutmy Scholarships

Sciences Po formed the Émile Boutmy scholarship, named after the school’s founder in 1871, to attract the best international students from countries outside the European Union. The Émile Boutmy Scholarship is provided to excellent students whose profiles correlate to Sciences Po’s admissions priority areas and individual course requirements.

The Émile Boutmy scholarship fund is made available by the generous support of its sponsors who want the best international students to study at Sciences Po. During official events, private sponsors can consider making direct contact with scholarship recipients.

Students must be first-time applicants, from a non-European Union country, whose household does not file taxes within the European Union, and admitted to the Undergraduate or Master’s program to be qualified for the scholarship.

This scholarship is awarded on merit and the type of profile desired for this program. Social criteria may also be taken into account.

Utrecht Excellence Scholarships

The Utrecht Excellence Scholarship (UES) is an extremely selective program for talented international students from countries other than the European Union.

You must meet the following requirements to be eligible for a Utrecht Excellence Scholarship:

1. You must be in the highest ten percent of your graduating class.

ENS International Selection Scholarships

Scholarships for bachelor’s and master’s degree programs are now accessible through the ENS International selection program 2023/2024. ENS International selection scholarships, awarded through an annual competitive examination, are intended for young graduates in the Arts and Humanities as well as Sciences who can prove that they have finalized at least one year of undergraduate studies at a university abroad and have differentiated themselves with outstanding results.

The Ecole normale supérieure (ENS) seeks to diversify its student body by enlisting students in their third year of a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science or first year of a master’s degree from across the world and from all fields of study.

There are lots of benefits associated with this scholarship which include;

1. Access to good training through contact with outstanding researchers in a privileged training and research environment.

2. A grant of 1000 euros per month for three years

3. A place to stay on one of the ENS campuses.

Reach Oxford Scholarships for Developing Country Students

Several Oxford colleges offer Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) to students from low-income countries that are unable to study for a degree in their countries of origin because of political or financial constraints, or because standard educational facilities do not exist. Scholarship recipients will study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom in any undergraduate course of study, apart from medicine because of the length and expense of the course.

The Reach Oxford scholarship scheme is only accessible to candidates with outstanding academic ability and exam results. However, financial need and social commitment are also essential selection criteria. Applicants must aim to go back to their home country after their studies are finished.

This scholarship would provide a stipend of £18,744 per year, health insurance, up to £2,000 in academic development funding, and a family allowance of up to £15,612.

British Chevening Scholarships in the UK for International Students

Chevening Scholarships enable outstanding future leaders from around the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the United Kingdom.

Because these scholarships are fully funded (flights, accommodations, and course fees are all included), you can focus on achieving your professional goals and making the best of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
