Scholarships and grants at AMSIB

AMSIB welcomes international students at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences to apply for scholarships and grants.

To honour and attract talented international students, AUAS has introduced a performance-based scholarship system: the Amsterdam Talent Scholarship (ATS). The ATS are awarded at the end of every academic year to non-EEA students. In order to be eligible for an ATS a student's study results have to meet certain pre-specified requirements.

The Dutch government offers so-called 'studiefinanciering' (student grants). To find out if you are entitled to 'studiefinanciering' please visit the website of the  DUO. DUO is responsible for the execution of several laws and regulations, such as student grants and information management.

At the  Study in Holland website you can find a search engine for scholarships and you will also find an overview of scholarships available when studying in the Netherlands.

The application deadline for the Holland Scholarship for academic year 2018-2019 is 1 May and now is closed. Applications for the academic year 2019-2020 will open after October 2018. 

The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to do an English taught bachelor’s or master’s in Holland. The EEA consists of the EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and selected Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences.

Scholarship amount

The scholarship amounts to €5,000. You will receive this in the first year of your studies. Please note that you can only apply for a Holland Scholarship if you applied for an AMSIB study programme before 1 May 2019.
