Leiden University Excellence Scholarship for LL.M Advanced Studies

Applications are invited for the Leiden University Excellence Scholarship (LExS) for excellent students of all nationalities joining an LLM Advanced Studies programme or the Masters in International Relations & Diplomacy.

Scholarship or loan amount

The LExS is awarded for the duration of the study programme. There are three available levels of awards:

  • € 10,000 of the tuition fee
  • € 15,000 of the tuition fee
  • Total tuition fee minus the statutory tuition fee

The LExS is not a full scholarship. Non-EEA LExS recipients must still submit ‘proof of sufficient funds’ for their student visa/residence permit application.

Application process

  • Apply online for admission to a Master’s programme at Leiden University and pay the application fee if applicable.
  • In the scholarship section of your online application, indicate that you wish to apply for a LExS.
  • Upload your LExS motivation letter as instructed in your online application. This is a Word doc of max. 500 words, in which you explain why you would like to be considered for the award.
  • Submit your online application, containing your LExS application, before the LExS application deadline.
  • If you apply for more than one study programme and wish to apply for a LExS for each, indicate this clearly in each application and upload a LExS motivation letter for each.

Selection process

  • The faculty selection committees will nominate LExS recipients and inform the Scholarships Team, up to 6 weeks after the LExS deadline.
  • The Scholarships Team will notify all LExS applicants of the decisions:
    – At the end of November – for the February intake.
    – At the end of April – for the September intake.
