Criteria for the Master’s Abroad programme

Are you eligible for a scholarship?

Are you a highly talented and ambitious student, and would you like to follow a master’s degree programme that is not available in the Netherlands? If you do not have the financial resources to do this, you can apply for a scholarship.  Take a careful look at all the criteria to assess whether you are eligible.

If you meet ALL the criteria, you can apply for a scholarship of up to €3,500 per year (possible to apply in multiple years). You do this by filling in the application form, completing it with the corresponding documents and emailing it to us.

At a board meeting, we discuss your application and decide whether you are eligible for a scholarship. A scholarship may be a gift, an interest-free loan or a combination of these.
