A number of partial scholarships are available from the ITC Excellence Scholarship Programme (ITC-ES), which will be awarded to applicants with a very good academic track record. The ITC Excellence Scholarship Programme is available for excellent students applying for the faculty ITC's Master’s degree programme Geo-information Science and Earth Observation with specializations in:
- Applied Remote Sensing for Earth Sciences
- Natural Hazards and Disaster Risk Reduction
- Land Administration
- Natural Resources Management
- Urban Planning and Management-
- Water Resources and Environmental Management
What does ITC offer?
Next to the standard study programme in which the applicant will be enrolled:
- Students receiving an ITC-ES and who perform excellently during the course may be offered some additional academic research courses or workshops.
- Depending on the study and thesis research results, a selected limited number of students will be offered a 3-month study extension during which either a scientific paper or a PhD research proposal can be developed.
- The selection of candidates for this 3-month extension is purely at the discretion of the ITC Management.
What is expected of you?
We expect applicants to score an average mark for the ITC study programme that falls in the 10% highest mark range obtained by our regular students. As such only academically excellent applicants will be selected for the award of these scholarships.
Half-way through the study programme, a progress appraisal will be made to determine if the candidate is making satisfactory progress and if the ITC-ESP funding may be continued to the second year. In case of underperformance (average score of 7.0 on a scale of 10) the scholarship may be terminated.
As this is a partial scholarship, admitted applicants must be able to show that additional funding is available to complement the funding through this scholarship (i.e. covering all remaining fees and costs in full before the payment deadline). The scholarship is awarded for the full duration of the Master's degree programme (two academic years).
