ASML Technology Scholarship 2020

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



At ASML we fully recognize the value of technical talent

Each year, 25 of the best technical master’s degree students from across the world studying at a Dutch university and RWTH Aachen are selected to receive the ASML Technology Scholarship.
Recipients get financial support for both years of their master’s degree, a personal mentor, and the opportunity to participate in a professional development program that prepares them for life after graduation.

What’s in it for you?

The ASML Technology Scholarship will provide each awarded student with:

  • Financial support of 5000 euro per year for both years of the full-time master degree.
  • A personal ASML mentor: an ASML expert who shares his/her technical knowledge and personal experiences with you, who introduces you to ASML activities and specialists and who guides you in your personal development.
  • A two-year professional development program. This program provides a variety of training courses and workshops. You will be enriched with a wide range of professional skills, giving you a head start in your career

What we ask in return

We ask all scholarship students to do a Technology Ambassador project within their scholarship period.
