The University of Twente Scholarship is currently accepting applications to outstanding students from both EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA countries who want to study in the Netherlands in 2022/2023.
The University Twente Scholarship (UTS) powered by ICD is a scholarship for outstanding candidates from the EU/EEA who are applying to the University of Twente’s Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering with a specialty in Integrated Circuit Design.
In the case of a two-year study, students may be eligible for an extra UTS ICD in the amount of the first year’s ICD to cover the costs of the second year.
However, the scholarship will only be renewed in the second year if students satisfy the UTS ICD’s progress standards.
