Scholarships and grants
Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships. Below you can find the few scholarships that might be applicable to you.
This programme is developed for excellent Chinese students who would like to study in the Netherlands. Please visit China CSC and Nuffic for more information about requirements and the value of the grant.
Erasmus Education Fund
Every academic year, the Erasmus Education Fund (EEF) supports several students with a scholarship of 3000 euro's per year. The EEF is only for excellent students who need provable financial support. Students may apply by following the application procedure for the EEF.
Erasmus School of Economics Student Waiver for excellent students from non-EEA countries

Resulting in a tuition fee equal to the statutory fee. Current or prospective students who are awarded this waiver will therefore not themselves directly receive a sum of money. The Excellent Student Waiver has specific requirements to be eligible.
