Asylum seekers have often had to overcome great adversity to start over in a new country. As the number of refugees in the Netherlands is increasing rapidly, a higher education institution is opening its doors to give them the chance to become a valuable
member of society. We believe international talent should not go to waste, which is why The Hague University of Applied Sciences and The Hague Graduate School are offering up to three Susana Menendez Bright Future Scholarships (BFS) for the 2020-2021
academic year that are open to all asylum status holders. In our opinion, higher education plays an essential role in preparing refugees for the Dutch job market and expanding their network and knowledge. We are looking for talented people and professionals
who are ready to take on the challenge and join one of our Master’s programmes (available in English).
The scholarship covers the full tuition fee for successful candidates. Books will be provided for, but must be returned after graduation.
