Scholarship Description: For excellent Non-EU/EEA students enrolling in alogo-unileiden Leiden University master’s degree programme and for excellent students from all nationalities enrolling in a Master of Law Advanced Programme or MSc in International Relations and Diplomacy. Students should be aware that the LExS is not a full scholarship. It is necessary to find additional funding to be able to finance their study and stay completely. One of the requirements for being granted a residence permit in the Netherlands is that students must submit proof that they have sufficient financial means to finance their study period in the Netherlands. Leiden University advises a budget, not including the tuition fee, of approx. €10,000 to €14,000 per year to cover the costs for rent, insurance, living expenses, course books and local transportation. How much money students actually spend will of course depend on their life style and spending habits.

Number of award(s): The Leiden University Excellence Scholarship programme has 5 awards Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Ivory. The number and type of award of the scholarship depends on the budget available for each Faculty department.

Duration of award(s): Fellowships are of up to 12 months’ duration.

What does it cover? The Leiden University Excellence Scholarship programme has 5 awards:
-Platinum Covers the tuition fee minus the home fee and an allowance of €10,000 for living costs
-Gold Covers the tuition fee minus the home fee
-Silver Covers 75% of the tuition fee
-Bronze Covers 50% of the tuition fee
-Ivory Covers 25 % of the tuition fee
The number and type of award of the scholarship depends on the budget available for each Faculty department. The type of award has no reflection on the students’ academic level of excellence. The tuition fee will be reduced to the amount of the home fee. Students who have been awarded a Platinum or Gold award still have to pay the home fee themselves.

Selection Criteria: Students are selected on the basis of academic merit.

Notification: All LExS applicants will be informed by the scholarship department of Student Educational Affairs in Mid April 2014 for the September 2014 intake and Mid November 2014 for the February 2015 intake.
