the Encompass program 2015-2016
Students holding a BA honours or the equivalent in history or a related discipline (humanities or social sciences) are eligible to take part in the foundation year. The application form can be downloaded here and must be submitted on or before 1 March 2015.
While the program is open to students from across the world, students from Asian countries can apply for the ENCOMPASS II scholarship which covers the Foundation Year. The Dutch Ministry of Education has provided the Institute for History with a total of 44 scholarships for the period 2012-2016 (eleven per year). The Encompass II program is based on the principle of shared funding: the scholarships cover tuition fees and basic living expenses in Leiden for students participating in the Foundation Year (20.000 euro per student).
Applicants must indicate at what level they intend to participate in the foundation year (pre-MA or pre-PhD) and how they propose to fund their post-foundation year track.
Applications for the year 2015-2016 are now welcome.
