You can only apply for a scholarship via OLAF in general. It is not possible to choose for a specific RSM scholarship. RSM will decide whether you get awarded a scholarship and - if so - which one.

What are the scholarship selection criteria I need to meet?

In general, we select the scholarship recipients based on merits (like GPA/gmat) and financial need.

Academic excellence for applicants with a Bachelor of Science from non-Dutch universities is proven if the average grade over the entire programme at the time of application is at least the equivalent of the Dutch grade of 8.0 on the Dutch grading scale 1 – 10. The Scholarship Committee will decide on the local grade equivalents for the Dutch grade of 8.0 using the grade information included in (a.o.) the Nuffic country modules. Additionally, a GMAT score of at least 700 is required.

Besides, you have to be aware that you will have to agree on a few general criteria before you applying for a scholarship:

  • Only students who are not recipients of any other scholarships exceeding the amount of € 5,000 in total in that same academic year can apply for the scholarship;
  • By accepting this scholarship you agree to assist the RSM Recruitment and Admissions Office in the role of an Ambassador with promotional and support activities for approximately 8 hours per month during the academic year;
  • By accepting this scholarship you agree to start your visa procedure before 1 June 2021. RSM holds the right to cancel your scholarship if you have not started your visa procedure and holds the right to offer the scholarship to a student on the scholarship waiting list.
