Holland Scholarship

The Holland Scholarship, providing financial support of €5,000, is a joint initiative between the Dutch Government and Dutch universities to stimulate the mobility of talented students, both to and from the Netherlands, in order to support and strengthen the international classroom. Tilburg University is proud to be part of this initiative and has a total of 16 Scholarships available for incoming students in the academic year 2022-2023.

To supplement this initiative, Tilburg University combines the Holland Scholarship with the Orange Tulip Scholarship for certain strategic countries. The combination of both a tuition fee waiver (via the Orange Tulip Scholarship) and the Holland Scholarship offers a great opportunity to study at Tilburg University.


In order to apply for this Scholarship, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be a citizen of China, Indonesia, Russia or Vietnam.

  • You must be admitted to a one-year Master's program at Tilburg University by April 1, 2022 at the latest.
