The best performers from the ERIM Doctoral programme proceed to a PhD position and an academic research career, either at ERIM, where the majority of our doctoral programme graduates continue their study, or at other Dutch and international universities.

ERIM offers a limited number of subsistence allowances to its very best applicants. The subsistence allowance amounts either € 5,000 or € 10,000 (which is sufficient to cover the living costs in the Netherlands for one year). If you would like to apply for this subsistence allowance, you have to submit a written scholarship application with the rest of your application package. Your scholarship application should include a motivation letter and a financial statement proving your need for financial support.
