Amsterdam Merit Scholarship in Law for International Students

Overview

The Faculty of Law - Amsterdam Law School - aims to attract talented students to its LL.M. programmes. Amsterdam Merit Scholarships are available for those who completed their LL.B. degree with flying colours.

Eligibility

Outstanding students from outside the European Economic Area can apply for an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship when they have completed their LL.B. degree with an average grade of 7,5 (on a scale from 1-10) and have been admitted to one of the LL.M. programmes of the Amsterdam Law School.

Applicants will be selected on the basis of academic merit: besides the average grade, the eligibility assessment will be made on the basis of resume, application, and letters of recommendation regarding academic qualities. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of scholarships that can be awarded, only the most outstanding candidates will be awarded a scholarship.

No more than five years should have elapsed between obtaining the LL.B. degree and start of the LL.M. programme. Scholarships will not be awarded to applicants who already obtained an LL.M. or any other master degree nor to applicants who have been granted another scholarship.


How to apply?
Applicants need to apply for an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship in a letter addressed to the Director of the Amsterdam Law School, Dr. M.Y.A. Zieck. The written application should be accompanied by two letters of recommendation regarding the academic qualities of the applicant, a certified copy of the LL.B. diploma and a certified copy of the grades obtained. The application for admission to an LL.M. programme of the Amsterdam Law School and a request for a scholarship can be made simultaneously.

When to apply?

The application should be sent before May 1, 2012 with respect to a scholarship for the academic year 2012-2013.

Selection

Only students who are admitted to one of the LL.M. programmes of the Amsterdam Law School can be awarded a scholarship. Students are selected on the basis of academic merit. Decisions as to eligibility for award of a scholarship are made in June 2012. Applicants will be informed before July 1, 2012.

The scholarship

There are 5 full Amsterdam Merit Scholarships scholarships available for excellent non EU students for the research master. The scholarship is for one year, if students complete the first year before August 31, and with high grades, the scholarship will be continued for the second year. Furthermore there are also partial scholarships available.

The scholarship consists of either 6000 €, or 9000 €. In the first month of study - September 2012 - the student will be paid 1000 €. The remainder of the scholarship will be paid in 12 monthly instalments. Note that the scholarship can not be used by way of (partial) tuition waiver: the applicant has to pay the full amount of the tuition due (12000 €).

Conditions

Amsterdam Merit Scholarships are only awarded to applicants who are admitted to one of the LL.M. programmes of the Faculty of Law - Amsterdam Law School. A scholarship granted for the academic year 2009-2010 can not be transferred to another academic year. Failing to enrol in the LL.M. programme to which the applicant has been admitted when the programme actually starts in September 2010 entails forfeiture of the scholarship. Amsterdam Merit Scholarships are not available to those who have been granted another full scholarship. Students who are awarded an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship are expected to complete the LL.M. programme to which they have been admitted within one year (30 EC per semester) and otherwise maintain good academic standing: the scholarship may be terminated when the student does not obtain 30 EC in the first semester. Students who are granted an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship are required to assent to the conditions attached to the scholarship in writing preceding the grant of the scholarship.

The Scholarship for 2 year Research Master programmes

Students enrolled in the Research Master who are granted a Merit Scholarship will be evaluated after one year of study. If the student has 50 EC on August 1, and has a positive recommendation of the coordinator of the programme, the scholarship will be continued for one more year.
