University of Groningen Talent Grant

The Eric Bleumink Fund awards scholarships to talented students and young researchers from developing countries. Such scholarships enable them to further develop as individuals and to make important contributions to the development of their own countries. Since 2000, the year the fund was started, the EBF has handed out over 40 scholarships. This means more than 40 young, ambitious and very talented people were able to follow an additional study at the University of Groningen. Here they were introduced to an academic culture, libraries and  international contacts they are often lacking in their homeland.

The grant is awarded for a 1 year or 2 years Master’s degree programme at the University of Groningen. The grant covers tuition fee, costs of international travel, subsistence, books, and health insurance. Please note that a considerable number of students apply for this scholarship each year, whereas the University can issue only a limited number of grants.
