The College of Communication aims to attract the world’s brightest students to its international classrooms. Outstanding students from outside the European Economic Area can apply for an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship (AMS). The AMS is a scholarship that covers the tuition fee for the nominal duration of the programme.
You have to be accepted to our Bachelor's programme to be eligible for the AMS. Therefore we advise you to apply for the AMS and programme simultaneously. Make sure that you have applied for the programme, as well as for the AMS, before 15 January 2022. The application for the scholarship and programme are two different submissions.
The scholarship consists of an amount equal to the tuition fee. Please note that the scholarship cannot be used as a (partial) tuition waiver. The applicant must still pay the full amount of tuition due, and can do this in instalments. Scholarship holders will also receive their grant in monthly instalments.
A scholarship granted for one academic year cannot be transferred to another academic year. Students who are granted an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship are required to assent to the conditions applying to the scholarship in writing before the scholarship will be remitted.
In order to be considered for the AMS scholarship applicants should:
*English language test results may not be older than 2 years. Some applicants are exempted from the English test (see our entry requirements). In that case, final examination grades will be considered.
The admissions committee will notify you early May if you have been awarded the scholarship.
Please apply online before the specific application deadline.
