European Students

In some cases you’re eligible for a loan or a contribution to your college expenses (in Dutch: studiefinanciering). But you have to meet several conditions, for instance in nationality, the duration of your stay in the Netherlands, or if you’ve studied before.
Want to know more about these loans and contributions and their conditions? See the information at DUO (Education Administration Service).

Non European Students

There are several options for acquiring scholarships and grants that cover some or all of the costs of a study programme at Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences (Non European students are not entitled to get financial support by the Dutch government). In general, candidates should bear in mind that official procedures require several months. It is therefore advisable to submit a scholarship request as early as possible.

It is useless to contact headquarters of organisations to ask about scholarship opportunities. Applications should instead be submitted through local projects/delegations only. An overview of relevant organisations you can apply to can be found here.

For an overview of other sponsoring agents specifically targeting Dutch study programmes please consult the Grant Finder web tool that has been developed by Nuffic. The address is
