Holland Scholarship Programme

The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to do their bachelor’s or master’s in Holland. The EEA consists of the EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Scholarship amount and conditions

The scholarship amounts to € 5,000. The amount will be transferred in two instalments (November 2019 and February 2020) after you have paid the full tuition fee amount. The scholarship will only be rewarded when you will start with the same programme for which you have applied and for which you have received admission.
