Faculty Scholarships for Masters in Theology at Radboud in Netherlands

The Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious studies in Radboud University is offering scholarships for excellent students from abroad, for the one-year Master’s specialisation in Theology (60 EC) for the 2021/22 session.

Radboud University is a Catholic University. It is the result of an emancipation process of Roman Catholics in The Netherlands in the beginning of the last century. Dutch Catholics sought to promote the emancipation of Roman Catholics in the Netherlands, who at that time were strongly underrepresented in public administration, the legal profession, medicine and other sectors.

Scholarships are available for pursuing master’s programme in the field of Theology.

Worth of Award

  • For students from countries belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA), the amount of € 10,500.
  •  For students who need a visa, the scholarships covers the minimum amount required to obtain a visa without tuition fee.
