As a non-EU Bachelor’s student, you can apply for the Amsterdam Merit Scholarship. There are also other sources of financial aid for both Dutch and international students.
We aim to attract the world’s brightest students to our international classrooms. Therefore, outstanding students from outside the EU can apply for the Amsterdam Merit Scholarship. The value of the scholarship is €6,000 per year (a total of €18,000). A limited number of scholarships are available each year for non-EU students.
The application for the scholarships is closed. The deadline was 15 January 2021.
In order to be considered for the AMS, you need to meet the following general criteria:
Eligible candidates are selected for a scholarship on the basis of their academic excellence and promise in the proposed field, as evidenced by:
*You are exempted from taking the English test if you have a secondary school diploma from a school located in and accredited by the respective authorities in Australia, Canada (except Quebec), Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, or the US.
Please note that the scholarship works on a reimbursement basis and is not a tuition fee waiver. You will therefore have to arrange the payment of your tuition fee yourself. The scholarship will be paid out in 12 equal installments.
Please contact us.
We provide a limited number of scholarships for excellent students. The total amount for the AMS, dedicated to Economics and Business, is established annually. As the actual number of scholarships is derived from this amount, no fixed number is in place.
