Deadline: not stated
Open to: promising students WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN ADMITTED TO WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY from developing countries and from countries in Middle and Eastern Europe
The Anne van den Ban Scholarship Fund, previously known as the ‘Stichting Redelijk Studeren’ (Sharing Responsibility for Students), is named after Dr. Ir. Anne van den Ban, former Professor of ‘Voorlichtingskunde’ (Rural Extension) at Wageningen University. The fund was founded in 1992 by two Wageningen alumni.
The scholarship fund enables promising students from developing countries and from countries in Middle and Eastern Europe to study at Wageningen University. As a result, it contributes to the education of competent and motivated local experts, who can then play a leading role in solving the structural problems of their country in agricultural production, rural development and the environment.
Every year, dozens of students apply to the fund. Your contribution can enable even more students to begin or complete a study at Wageningen University.
The fund exists to enable promising students from developing countries and Central and Eastern Europe to study at Wageningen University. The long term goal is the training of talented experts who will go on to play leading roles in improving the agricultural production, rural development and environment in their own countries.
In addition to the geographical criteria students applying for the fund must meet the following conditions:
- they must already be accepted for their chosen study at Wageningen
- they must have achieved good academic results in their own country
- they must intend to return to their own country at the completion of their degree
The fund also gives preference to candidates who already receive some form of financial assistance.
Applicants please note: the Anne van den Ban Fund is not a rich fund. The fund can only support a limited number of students each year. Check the official website for the latest news.
