Please note: the deadline for the NN Future Matters scholarship applications has expired. The next round will open in January 2020.

Part of the scholarship is meant for tuition fees. Students from non-EEA countries like Turkey and Japan pay a much higher tuition fee than EEA students, therefore the scholarship for Turkish and Japanese students is larger (up to a maximum of € 20,000).
