Are you not qualified to apply for an Erasmus or Holland Scholarship award but are considering studying, working as an intern, or doing research abroad? If so, you may be eligible to apply for an Individual Travel Grant (IRS) from the Radboud University Profiling Fund.
This stipend is meant to make up for the additional costs you incur while you study abroad. These costs might include travel, lodging, immunizations, and tickets. You will not be eligible for the award if there are no such additional costs—for instance, in the case of a virtual study exchange. The trip must also be approved by your professor or study program, since it is crucial that the exchange be relevant to your coursework.
To be eligible for an Individual Travel Grant for study, internship, or research abroad, you must fulfill the following requirements:
- you are enrolled in a bachelor’s or master’s degree program at Radboud University full-time;
- your exchange program will last for a minimum of two consecutive months;
- your exchange program is located overseas;
- You are not getting funding from the Radboud Honours Academy, the Erasmus program, or the Holland Scholarship Program;
- You’ll get credit for the course;
- You will be departing in more than two weeks;
- you have not yet been awarded a Holland Scholarship or Individual Travel Grant for study, research, or a (medical) internship during your current study cycle.
For stays inside Europe, the compensation is 200 euros per month; for stays outside of Europe, it is 300 euros per month. The number of days you spend studying abroad will determine how much of the scholarship you actually earn. The maximum period of compensation is four months.
Utilizing your Osiris account, begin the application process for a stay overseas. You will instantly get an email with further grant application information as soon as your application has been provisionally accepted by the international office of your faculty. Every year, in April or thereabouts, grant applications for the next academic year are opened. Therefore, in April, you should get an email with further grant application information. Approximately one working day after your stay abroad has been authorized in Osiris, if April has already gone or you’re traveling abroad during the current academic year, you’ll get an email with instructions for your grant application.
The email contains a link to an online form that provides further details about the grant application. Complete the online form.
