  • In Holland, higher education is subsidized, which means that tuition fees can be kept relatively low, especially compared with the United Kingdom and the United States. Because of this, we do not have an extensive scholarship programme. This doesn't mean we don't have them at all though, so make sure to have a closer look.
  • Your changes are slim, meaning that most students won't gain a scholarship. There are hundreds of new students each year, but there is not an equal amount of scholarships available. But you never know, you might just be one of the lucky (chosen) ones. As long as you take into account that you may have to arrange financial aid in a different way, you're fine.
  • Most of the requirement apply to:

    1. Study results / being an excellent student;
    2. Being able to demonstrate your ambition;
    3. Level of study;
    4. Obtained diplomas;
    5. Country of origin.
  • Selecteer eerst op de pagina Beurzen en fondsen dat je van plan bent om als student aan de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam te gaan studeren of dat je al aan de EUR studeert en overweegt om op uitwisseling te gaan.

    Na het selecteren van één van deze opties, kom je op een pagina met een beursoverzicht dat van toepassing is op jouw situatie.

  • Preparing an application for a scholarship can be time consuming. Deadlines can be as early as January, so make sure to plan ahead. Start looking for scholarships 6-12 months in advance.

  • That depends on the scholarship. The scholarship may be a partial tuition fee waiver which means you still need to pay tuition fee. Please check the criteria of your scholarship carefully.

  • In a lot of cases you will receive the scholarship for only one year. Please check the scholarship criteria carefully to avoid unpleasant surprises. Think about ways to finance your 2nd and/or 3rd year in advance.
