Information on COVID-19 in relation to the application round of December 2020
On 5 December 2020:
Given the special circumstances of COVID-19, this message will clarify a number of ambiguities.
With regard to the possibility for a Leiden University student to submit an application, we shall only handle applications that have been given the green light by Leiden University.
However, this doesn’t guarantee that a scholarship of the Minerva Scholarship Fund will be granted.
When an application is honoured with a scholarship, this doesn’t create a precedent for following applications in the same category.
- The Minerva Scholarship Fund has adopted the standard of Leiden University that says that no foreign travels can take place until mid March 2021 (only with an explicit, written approval of Leiden University an application can, therefore, be dealt with).
- The Minerva Scholarship Fund doesn’t deal with applications of people that merely reside in the Netherlands.
- The Minerva Scholarship Fund doesn’t deal with applications that only focus on following a bachelor or a master degree in a foreign country.
Update of 29 September 2020:
The board of the Minerva Scholarship Fund would like to announce that the annual account of 2019 has now been published on its site.
Update of 28 June 2020:
The board of the Minerva Scholarship Fund would like to announce that, due to COVID-19, it has not been possible to meet in time for the annual account to be drawn up. Therefore, the board had to decide to postpone the publication of the annual account; it will come as soon as possible.
