Utrecht Excellence Scholarships - faculteit Geesteswetenschappen

In deze tijd van globalisering van onderwijs en onderzoek en de internationalisering van de arbeidsmarkt is het belangrijk om een international classroom binnen de Geesteswetenschappen te creëren. De faculteit Geesteswetenschappen stimuleert daarom graag de komst van uitstekende internationale studenten.

Maar voor veel getalenteerde studenten van buiten de Europese Economische Ruimte (E.E.R.) is het financieel niet haalbaar om een masteropleiding aan de Universiteit Utrecht te volgen. Zij kunnen geen lening aanvragen, hebben geen vrije toegang tot de Nederlandse arbeidsmarkt en betalen meer collegegeld. Een jaar studeren aan onze faculteit kost al snel zo'n 17.000 euro. En daar komen de kosten voor levensonderhoud nog bovenop. De Utrecht Excellence Scholarships zijn in het leven geroepen om ook hen in de gelegenheid te stellen om te studeren.

Draag bij aan een internationaler studieklimaat

De komst van jonge talenten naar Utrecht helpt die studenten zélf. Het is ook in alle opzichten een verrijking voor de faculteit Geesteswetenschappen en voor het internationale studieklimaat. Studenten hebben een internationale oriëntatie in hun opleiding nodig om een rol te kunnen vervullen op de complexe, globaliserende arbeidsmarkt. Door aan dit beurzenprogramma bij te dragen brengt u een mooie toekomst voor talentvolle studenten een stuk dichterbij. Kunnen wij op uw hulp rekenen? 

U kunt uw bijdrage overschrijven op rekeningnummer NL 40 ABNA 0428 040 470 o.v.v. de projectnaam ´Vrienden GW-UES´. Of doneer rechtstreeks via onze site.

Help studenten zoals Rashmi, Pınar, Elena en Zeynep.

"The UES Scholarship is the reason I could follow my passion to study religion" - Rashmi Shetty uit India, Research Master Religious Studies

“The UES-scholarship has allowed me to hone my skills to the best of my abilities. I grew up in a small coastal town in India, called Mangalore, which was rather notorious for religious conflicts. As a teenager, I idealistically decided that this is a problem I want to "solve". The RMA Religious Studies programme allows me to focus on religion as a 'lived experience' and understand contemporary theories and problems surrounding the phenomenon of religion, and potentially apply them to complex, real-world problems of religious co-existence and difference.”

“Thanks to UES I met with others who had similar aspirations and who have supported me and challenged me with their brilliance” - Pınar Türer uit Istanbul, Research Master Gender Studies

"I aspired to pursue an academic career that would prioritize making an impact on the lives of those who experience social and economic injustices and violence, including women, LGBTQI+ people, people of color, ethnic minorities. Being able to become a student in the Gender Studies program allowed me to grow confident in, and even more passionate about the path I have drafted for myself. None of this would have been possible if I did not receive the Utrecht Excellence Scholarship and I will always be grateful for this opportunity. It pushed me to grow as a socially and politically aware and responsible person; it taught me so much about myself.”

"I am very grateful to UES for the opportunity to grow professionally in the field I wish to connect my life with" - Elena Savinova uit Rusland, Research Master Linguistics

“During my bachelor’s in Fundamental and Computational Linguistics I developed a strong interest in psycholinguistics: the field that is concerned with psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend and produce language. Reading the key research papers written by Dutch linguists in this field, I dreamed about studying in the Netherlands myself. The Research Master's in Linguistics in Utrecht is an important step for my future academic career development and I am very grateful to UES for the opportunity to grow professionally in the field I wish to connect my life with. Without it, I would not have been able to pursue my dream.”

I will be forever grateful for this opportunity that helped me grow as a person” - Zeynep Naz Inansal uit Istanbul, Research Master Media, Art and Performance Studies

"After obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television, I worked for three years in various positions in the film industry in Istanbul, Turkey. Having the dream of an academic career in mind, I was full of self-doubt, questioning every job I took and each decision I made. When I received the news that I got the Utrecht Excellence Scholarship, allowing me to pursue a Research Master’s degree in Media, Art and Performance Studies, everything fell into place. That was the day I stopped questioning my choices, as all of them have led me to this wonderful point. Thanks to this scholarship, I was able to develop my academic interests further, get out of my comfort zone, experiment with topics and theories that I never knew existed and work with brilliant people. I will be forever grateful for this opportunity that helped me grow as a person."
