Criteria for the Study in the Netherlands programme

Are you eligible for a scholarship?

Have you successfully started your studies, and will you graduate within a reasonable period of time, but are you no longer able to pay your tuition? Then you can apply for a scholarship from us.

If you meet ALL the criteria, you can apply for a scholarship of up to €4,000 per year (possible to apply over 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 and under what conditions you are eligible for a scholarship. A scholarship may be a gift, an interest-free loan or a combination of these.
