Scholarships and Grants

As an international student, can I get the studiefinanciering (student finance) from DUO?

In the Netherlands, a studiefinanciering (study grant) does not exist any more. Students who do not have enough money to pay for their study can take out a loan to a 0% interest. In the past, this would be converted into a gift if you graduated within 10 years, but this has been abolished. More information is available on duo.nl/particulier/student-finance/index.jsp. You can also check the ACCESS FAQ about financial support for students.

Please note that you can still apply for the student travel product (studentreisproduct). 

Is it possible to get financial support if I undertake further study in the Netherlands?
