UM First Generation Students (FGS) Scholarship
Maastricht University is committed to nurturing an inclusive culture. In doing so, UM has developed a strategic diversity & inclusivity programme in order to be open and accessible for everyone. The university has a special focus on so called ‘First Generation Students’ who are the first in their family to follow higher education. Research has shown that this group experiences more social and financial barriers to study. The UM First Generation Students Scholarship strives to reduce the financial barriers for these young people to study at UM and enable them to acquire equal chances in society.
The programme provides scholarships to Dutch First Generation Students enrolled in a bachelor programme at UM:
- Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences
- Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience
- Faculty of Science and Engineering
(except Maastricht Science Programme and University College Maastricht)
- Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
School of Business and Economics
The scholarship programme is initiated and funded by a UM alumnus who strives to improve the accessibility of education for young people and help UM in achieving its diversity and inclusivity ambitions.
