You can apply for a scholarship from the Faculty of Health Sciences that is equivalent to one year's salary and one year's tuition fees.
The Dean of the Faculty decides the allocation of the scholarships on the basis of recommendations from a scholarship committee that consists of the heads of the Faculty’s eight departments. The scholarship committee holds quarterly meetings.
The deadlines for meetings of the scholarship committee in 2015 are:
2 March is the application deadline for the meeting on 17 March
1 June is the application deadline for the meeting on 16 June
1 September is the application deadline for the meeting on 16 September
1 December is the application deadline for the meeting on 16 December
To apply for a Faculty scholarship, you need to comply with the following:
- You need documentation for the secured financing of two years’ salary, two years’ tuition fees and a minimum of 50% of the running costs
- Your PhD project and your application for enrolment must have been approved by the PhD School
Please be aware that you cannot apply for a scholarship if you are already enrolled as a PhD student.
How to apply
To apply for the 1-year Faculty scholarship, please follow the instructions in the application form.
We generally give the Faculty scholarship for either the first or the second of the three PhD years. If you have been granted a Faculty scholarship, please contact the PhD School and make specific arrangements for the placement of the scholarship in one of these years. We will do our best to accommodate your wishes, but please note that this may not always be possible due to general economic considerations.
Expiration date: approval is valid for one year
The approval of your application for a Faculty scholarship is valid for one year. If you have not commenced your PhD study period within one year from the date of the approval of your application for a scholarship, the approval will be withdrawn without further notice. Note that you can reapply if this happens.
