Gender equality, diversity and inclusion are hot topics in contemporary politics, organisations and society. Managing the diversity of the workforce is a key challenge for private and public organisations alike.
Are you interested in topical debates about the role gender, race, and ethnicity play in national, European and global political decision-making? Do you want to understand the positions of men and women of different backgrounds, gays, lesbians and transgenders in society and politics as well as the dynamics of gender hierarchies and gender politics? Then this programme is made for you!
The Master's specialisation in Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Politics introduces you not only to issues
1. A completed Bachelor's degree in Political Science or a related discipline from a recognised, academic university.
2. Competency in Social Science Research Methodology (quantitative and qualitative)
3. A proficiency in English (Non-native speakers of English* without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma need one of the following):
a. A TOEFL score of ≥90, with subscores not lower than 18
b. A IELTS score of ≥6.5, with subscores not lower than 6.0
c. Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) with a mark of C or higher
€2,168 (from EEA countries); €16,000 (from non-EEA countries).
When you look at the newspaper or talkshows on tv, people often talk about theme's related to this master's specialisation. It shows that this programme is actual and relevant. You learn to look at equality and diversity issues from different angles: you will follow courses not only about Political Science, but also from Human Geography and Business Administration. So far, the programme taught me a great deal. I learned to substantiate where inequality comes from, but I also learned how it might be resolved in the future!
The group of people who chose this master is rather small so far, but I see it as an advantage. We have much more contact with our professors and teachers compared to the Bachelor's.
During your Master's there are not many contact hours, however, it takes a lot of time to prepare for your courses. In Political Science we often have discussions during seminars. If you do not come prepared, you cannot participate well. But if you do, seminars will be fun and you will learn a great deal.
I just started working on my thesis. I am still finding out what it is going to be exactly, but I want to write it about the relationship between stereotypical gender and sexuality roles and gender-based violence.
For too long people did not worry about discrimination based on gender, sexuality, disability, ethnicity or age. I think it is great that we pay attention to this nowadays. And I am looking forward to contribute to change via my future job. Whatever it might be!
The Radboud Scholarship Programme is a very selective scholarship programme. It offers talented, highly motivated, non-EEA students with outstanding study results the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship for a complete English-taught Radboud University Master’s degree programme.
Scope of the programme
Each year 12 full scholarships and about 25 partial scholarships are awarded within the Radboud Scholarship Programme for the duration of one of the English taught Master's degree programmes (with the exception of Erasmus Mundus Master's programmes, joint-degree Master's programmes, and the Master's programme in Theology (3year)).
A full scholarship covers the tuition fee of €16,000/€16,500 and living costs of €10,800 (as set by the IND, the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service, for 2021/2022).
A partial scholarship will reduce your tuition fee to € 2,168. For example: a grant holder in 2021/2022 will pay a tuition fee of only €2,168, instead of €16,000/€16,500.
Full scholarships (tuition and living) and partial scholarships (legal instead of institutional tuition fees)
You will be eligible to apply for a Radboud Scholarship if you:
- hold a non-EU/EEA passport
- are not eligible for the lower EEA tuition fee for other reasons
- have (will obtain) a Bachelor's degree achieved outside the Netherlands
- meet the English language proficiency requirement for the Master's programme of your choice
- have been (will be) fully admitted to the English-taught Master's degree programme starting 1 September
You can apply by indicating during your application for admission for a Master's programme at Radboud University that you wish to apply for a Radboud Scholarship. You will then be requested to upload three additional documents: two reference letters and a curriculum vitae, if you have not already done so for the Master's programme application.
The selection for the scholarship and the admission to the Master's programme are two separate processes: admission to the Master's programme does not imply selection for the scholarship.
Grant amounts for one year courses:
The grant will be paid in 11 monthly installments of € 1,250. International travel will be reimbursed to a maximum of € 900. The residence permit will be arranged and paid for by Radboud University (approximately € 192). Tuition fees are not waived, and differ per programme.
Grant amounts for two year courses:
The grant for the first year of study will be paid in 12 monthly installments of € 1,250. International travel will be reimbursed to a maximum of € 900. The cost of the residence permit (approximately € 192) will also be covered. Tuition fees are not waived, and differ per programme.
The grant for a two year Master's will be available for both years of study, on the condition that sufficient progress is made and sufficient results have been achieved in the first year. If awarded for the second year, the second grant period will not exceed 11 monthly installments of € 1,250.
~€25000 per year
To qualify for a scholarship, applicants must have American nationality, have excellent academic marks, engage in extracurricular activities and be admitted to Radboud University Nijmegen.
Please note that U.S. students currently residing in the Netherlands will not be considered for any awards to the Netherlands. In addition, U.S. students with both U.S. and Dutch or European Union citizenship will not be considered.
