Please check your eligibility below

Various scholarship opportunities are available to UvA Summer School students. Please check the programme of your choice for specific scholarship information, as some scholarship applications require you to submit extra documents, and amounts vary per programme. Note: it is not possible to apply for more than one scholarship per student per summer.

  • Scholarships from your home international office

    Certain universities may have bilateral exchange agreements which lead to partial or full tuition remission for some of the UvA Summer School courses. Check our list of partner universities to see if we have such a formal Global Exchange Programme agreement with your home university. Your home international office should also be able to inform you if such an agreement exists and what the rules and regulations are.

  • U21/LERU Partial Scholarship

    If your university is a member of the Universitas 21 network and/or LERU network then you may be eligible for a partial scholarship of €250. You must also be a current student at that university when you apply for the summer programme.  If you graduate before the start of the summer programme but were a student at the time of submitting your application, you will still be eligible for the scholarship. 

    Please note: Students studying at Dutch universities on these lists are not eligible for these scholarships.   

    You must verify that your home university is a member of the LERU network and/or the U21 network. The Summer Programmes Office GSSS will then be able to submit your application to the U21/LERU scholarship fund. The final decision on granting these scholarships is made by the UvA following acceptance of the candidates into the summer programmes. The scholarship will be deducted from your tuition.  There are a limited number of scholarships available.

    • Step 1: Check your eligibility by making sure that your home university is in the LERU or U21 network.
    • Step 2: Check whether a scholarship is available for the summer course in which you are interested. Not all programmes participate in this scholarship opportunity. 
    • Step 3: Apply to the course of your choice and mention that you are applying for this scholarship opportunity.
    • Step 4: When you are accepted to the course, you will be notified in your offer of admission if you have been awarded the scholarship.
  • The Amsterdam University Fund (AUF Travel Grant)

    The Amsterdam University Fund (AUF) also supports a number of international students who register for a summer course at the University of Amsterdam. The AUF covers part of the travel expenses for a limited number of students (there is a fixed budget).

    Please visit the scholarship page of the programme to which you are applying to see if there are travel grants available. You may be required to submit extra documents to complete your application. 

  • MENA Scholarship Programme (MSP) - CLOSED

    The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Scholarship Programme (or MSP) offers scholarships to professionals from MENA countries. The scholarships can be used for short courses in the Netherlands. The programme is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The main aim of the MSP is to contribute to democratic transition in the selected countries. It also aims at building capacity within organisations, by enabling employees to take part in short courses in the Netherlands.

    While scholarships are awarded to individuals, the need for training must be demonstrated in the context of the organisation for which the applicant works.

    Contact the Summer School office responsible for your programme for the appplication deadline.

    Please note that not all summer programmes are elligible for this scholarship opportunity. Please check the Scholarships page for the programme you are interested in to see if it is open for application.
