in partnership with Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) in Yogyakarta.
It offers a unique opening for advanced international

History or Archival & Postcolonial Studies.

international research universities. It has seven faculties in the arts,
sciences and social sciences spread over locations in Leiden and The Hague. The
University has over 6,500 staff members and 26,900 students. The motto of the

The program intends to attract the most talented international
students at the postmaster level. Eligible candidates should be able to
Excellence in archival/historical research, as evidenced by

other than English must have certified proficiency at a minimal degree of 7.0
IELTS/ 100 TOEFL;
Sufficient financial support for all relevant costs
(including for living and accommodation) either through the Cosmopolis
scholarship program or private or external funding.
Throughout the program, Cosmopolis Advanced will actively
recruit at least 10 students for the MA program based on a so-called
Van Leur Scholarship (funded by Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science,
OC&W). The latter is specifically meant to stimulate research into the
still most neglected VOC archives and the centuries’ old shared heritage it
represents. After their selection by the scholarship committee, students will
receive a scholarship for 18 months. For the Van Leur
Scholarship, Leiden University waives the lion share (22.000 EUR) of
the regular tuition fee of 25.000 EUR (for 18 months).
After the successful completion of the pilot-study, the Indonesian
students compete for 5 Ph.D. positions (funded by UGM Indonesia). Students
working on the VOC compete for 2 PhD-positions (funded by
OC&W). Other students will compete for PhD-positions on the basis of
external funding. For PhD-fellows, Leiden University will provide office
space and the usual research facilities. In Indonesia, office space and
research facilities will be provided by the Indonesian partners.
A scholarship committee with representatives from both
partners is responsible for the selection process. LU and UGM are
responsible for the practical organization of the selection process of the Van
Leur and UGM scholarships respectively. The committee will take decisions
on the basis of the recommendations of LU (for Van Leur Scholarships) and UGM
(for UGM scholarships). After selection, the selected students become regular
MA and PhD-students at LU and are subject to the usual regulations regarding
the program in which they are enrolled.
