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.
