- LPDP and MoRA scholarship programmes
These are two Indonesian scholarship programmes for PhD students. The monthly reimbursement for PhD students is approximately €1200.
- Desmond Tutu Program (DTP)
The Desmond Tutu Training Programme (DTTP) is an academic cooperation programme for the joint supervision of PhD students with a focus on the ‘Bridging Diversities for Academic Advancement’ theme.
The recruitment of international PhD students mainly takes place through faculty employees’ international networks. Outside the Netherlands, vacancies are brought to students’ attention through Academic Transfer (AT). We also use methods to promote international vacancies that are specific to an area of expertise, for example during conferences.
