The University of Twente Scholarship is available to both EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA students who wish to enroll in a Master’s program (MSc) at the University of Twente. This scholarship aims to recognize and support exceptional students by providing them with financial assistance.

Key Features of the UTS:

  • Financial Support: The UTS provides financial assistance ranging from €3,000 to €22,000 for one academic year. Approximately 50 scholarships are available annually.
  • Honors Programs: UTS recipients have an exclusive opportunity to participate in an intake process for one of the three prestigious honors programs:
    • Research Honors: Engage in cutting-edge research alongside top faculty members.
    • Design Honors: Explore innovative design and creative solutions.
    • Change Leaders: Develop leadership skills to drive positive societal change.
  • Two-Year Study Programs: If you’re enrolled in a two-year program, you may receive an additional UTS scholarship for the second year. However, continuation of the scholarship in the second year depends on meeting specific requirements:
    • Maintain an average grade of 7 (out of 10) by the end of the third quartile of the first year.
    • Achieve at least 50% of European Credits during the same period.
  • Flexible Usage: The UTS is intended to offset study-related costs, but you have the autonomy to decide how to allocate the scholarship funds. Note that it does not cover tuition fees directly.
  • Kipaji Scholarship: For programs starting in September 2024, eligible UTS applicants can also apply for the Kipaji Scholarship. Make sure to explore the specific requirements for this additional scholarship.
