Grants and loans
When you study in the Netherlands, you may be entitled to a student grant or a tuition fee allowance from the Dutch Students grant and loans system (mainly for EU/EEA students).
If you are not eligible for these, try http://www.grantfinder.nl/. This is an online search engine for those who want to study in the Netherlands and are looking for financial aid, including the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes for professionals from targeted developing countries.
Please note that grants and scholarships seldom cover all of the costs of studying and living. You will need a well-balanced financial plan to provide support while completing your studies. Enrolment in a Master's degree programme at Utrecht University does not automatically constitute an offer of financial support.
