The UT – Brazil Scholarship Programme

Between 2010 and 2016 the University of Twente received a total of 75 non-degree students on exchange from Brazil. The UT – Brazil Scholarship Programme has been created in order to support 6 of these Brazilian students with € 15.000 when pursuing a Master's programme at the University of Twente.

Please note: The UT – Brazil Scholarship Programme is only available for Brazilian students who have been on exchange on a Science without Borders scholarship in the Netherlands in the past.

The scholarships have been created in order to support the Brazilian student recruitment market. This scholarship is not a performance-required scholarship, but a once-off gift to individuals from a specific group of alumni.
