Who would not want to attend a college where ambition, talent, and diversity are evaluated accordingly? Deciding upon studying abroad it is not only a decision calculated based on financial potential but it is also a decision which incorporates a future. University College Groningen (UCG), Netherlands understand the struggle of a non-European student granting scholarships aimed to help them and make them candidates at UCG.
UCG is offering the USP scholarship which is a grant towards study and living costs being evaluated at €12.000. The USP scholarship is dedicated to students who have an excellent academic profile but who are deeply in need of financial assistance to study. University College Groningen is rewarding students with great ambition but who have a passion for social engagement being determined to make a positive impact during their studies at UCG.
Since the scholarship is merit-based, students will need to provide financial proof of their need for funding. The USP scholarship is specifically available for BA/ BSC Liberal Arts and Sciences which is a 3-year program reflecting the period over which the scholarship extends. However, even if the USP scholarship is awarded over a period of 3 years, it is up to students and their academic achievements to use it in the second and third year of their study. The closing date for the application is February 1st 2018.
