Named after the former TU/e President, the ALSP is a very lucrative scholarship program aimed towards excellent students who reach the top grades in their previous studies at renowned universities outside the Netherlands. It is funded by a number of top international technology companies such as ASML, Philips and Bosch.
This scholarship waives your tuition fee, and provides a contribution of €5000 a year for both years for your living expenses! You will also earn a good salary during your three years of work experience.
It covers five years: the first two as you study for your Master’s at TU/e, and the remaining three when you work for the company that sponsors your scholarship. Your scholarship will be tailored to your academic background and expertise, to ensure you match the company that funds the scholarship. In this way, you will gain both valuable work experience as well as a steady salary.
It is very important to submit your application as soon as possible to be eligible for this scholarship, with the final deadline being the 1st February 2012. This is because the scholarship is allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.
There is also more information on various scholarships open to MSc students available online.
It is very important to note that for most scholarships you must have received your admittance to the Master’s program before you can apply for them. However, these scholarships have their own deadlines that can easily be missed if you delay your application. Therefore it is very important that you complete and submit your application as soon as possible to ensure that you can receive scholarships that you are eligible for.
In case you cannot fully cover the costs of studying at the TU/e, the university offers loans to talented applicants to help them make the move to the Netherlands. The loan is a € 8,500 contribution to living expenses for the two years of the Master's programme.
To be eligible, you must have already been admitted to a TU/e Master’s program, have achieved at least 80% CGPA of maximum in your Bachelor’s degree, and not been granted funding by any other organisation.
You will be contacted by the International Relations Office in the spring after you have been granted admission to a Master’s program, and if you have not been granted a scholarship. Here they will provide more information.
The three most important terms of the loan are as follows:
