QuTech is offering scholarships for excellent, international applicants interested in a Masters track in quantum. Per year, QuTech offers 6 full scholarships, two for each roadmap: Fault-tolerant Quantum Computing, Quantum Internet and Networked Computing, and Topological Quantum Computing. When a student completes the MSc programme and receives a 9 (90%) or higher for the MSc thesis project, the student will be offered a PhD position in the same roadmap.

About the scholarship

The QuTech scholarships covers full tuition fees for the TU Delft MSc programme and contributes to living expenses for two years.

 Tuition fee is € 15.575 per year for non-EU students and € 2.060 per year for EU students.

Requirements & procedure

  • The Scholarships are for excellent, international applicants specifically interested in quantum and admitted to one of the TU Delft’s MSc programmes, preferably of the faculties of Applied Sciences or the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science.
  • Cumulative grade point average (GPA) has to be 80 per cent or higher and applicants need to have studied at an internationally renowned university outside the Netherlands.
  • Applicants need to apply for the QuTech Scholarship by writing a motivational letter to one of the three Roadmaps: Fault-tolerant Quantum Computing, Quantum Internet and Networked Computing and Topological Quantum Computing. The programme will be at the selected Roadmap.
  • Besides the motivation letter, two reference letters, a comprehensive CV and a (Skype) meeting are part of the selection procedure.
  • The deadline for applying for a scholarship is 1 December.
  • The application for a scholarship is part of your MSc application procedure, please follow the steps.
