Scholarships and grants
We understand that studying can be expensive and that you may need financial support. The Dutch government supports students by subsidizing the tuition fees of all EEA students. Therefore EEA students pay a lower tuition fees than non-EEA students. In addition, the Dutch government allows EEA students to take out loans for their tuition fees.
