Both the U.S. government and the Dutch government support the Fulbright program, which provides funding for students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools. Maastricht University (UM) supports the Fulbright program by providing a Fulbright scholarship in any of its many master’s programs.
The Fulbright / Maastricht University Award provides fully funded 1 year master’s level scholarships. UM offers two awards for eligible students of U.S. higher education institutions in any of its master’s programs. You can find detailed information about this scholarship on the Fulbright website.
The grant consists of a monthly allowance of €1.300 for 9 months, plus a full waiver of tuition fees. In addition, an international travel allowance of €1.000 is included, and the cost of the residence permit will be reimbursed (or not charged) as well.
Duration of the Fulbright / Maastricht University Award
9-10 months for a Master’s programme, depending on your participation in the Pre-Academic Training of Maastricht University.
