Scholarships and loans

The University of Amsterdam (UvA) aims to attract the world’s brightest students to its international classrooms. For that reason, it has established several scholarship programmes specifically designed to offer talented and motivated international students the opportunity to pursue a degree at the UvA.

International students

You can apply for various scholarships to cover your studies at the UvA. Examples include the Amsterdam Merit Scholarship and the Amsterdam Excellence Scholarship, which targets exceptionally talented Master’s students from outside Europe.

In addition to scholarships, other forms of financial support for studying in the Netherlands may be available. In some cases, international students may be eligible for support from the Dutch government.
