Leiden University (in cooperation with Nuffic Neso Taipei) offers 2 scholarships of €7,500 each, which will count towards the payment of the international tuition fee for the first academic year of the study programme. In the case that the most eligible applicant for an award will be pursuing a 2-year master's degree, Leiden University will consider offering one 2-year scholarship in place of two 1-year scholarships. As the tuition fee is higher than the scholarship, students are responsible for the payment of the remaining tuition fee.
In addition, the Faculty of Science provides one Scholarship to the value of € 5,000 for an admitted MSc student in the field of Cosmology and one Scholarship to the value of EUR 5000 for an admitted MSc student in any other field of Physics and Astronomy. Or else a Scholarship to the value of € 2,500 for admitted MSc students in Mathematics.
It is possible to submit applications for more scholarship programmes simultaneously. However, it is not possible to obtain more than 1 scholarship from Leiden University for the same study programme. Also, it is not possible to combine scholarships which are provided or sponsored by Leiden University (e.g. Leiden University Excellence Scholarship, Leiden-CEU Praesidium Libertatis etc.) or bilateral agreements.
The scholarships are valid for the Master’s programmes at Leiden University (taught in English) starting in September 2013.

OTS-Leiden University Scholarship: Chinese-language website.
The student is responsible for submitting a complete application, according to the steps described above before the aforementioned deadline. Leiden University cannot be held responsible for late and/or incomplete applications.
Students should be aware that this is not a full scholarship. It is necessary to find additional funding to be able to finance their study and stay completely. One of the requirements for being granted a residence permit in the Netherlands is that students must submit proof that they have sufficient financial means to finance their study period in the Netherlands. Leiden University advises a budget, not including the tuition fee, of approx. €10,000 to €15,000 per year to cover the costs for rent, insurance, living expenses, course books and local transportation. How much money students actually spend will of course depend on their life style and spending habits.
