Frequently asked questions about the ASML Technology Scholarship
I have already started my master’s degree in engineering. Can I still apply for a scholarship?
The ASML Technology Scholarship in engineering is open to all students who start their master’s degree program in the same year that they submit their scholarship application. For example, if you started your master’s degree studies in February 2022, you can still apply for the scholarship in 2022. However, if you started in September 2021, you are no longer eligible for the 2022 scholarships.
Note: Those who begin their master’s degree program with a full-time extracurricular activity such as a student team are still eligible and can apply a year later, when they begin their full-time master’s degree study.
