There are several ways to finance your study in the Netherlands.
University College Utrecht offers scholarships to both Dutch and international students who need financial support to cover the cost of their study. All information about scholarships for applicants is available here. On a yearly basis, at least one full scholarship (covering tuition and campus fees) is granted. All other scholarships are awarded in the form of a (partial) fee waiver.
If you are applying for Fall enrolment and wish to apply for the UCU Scholarship Fund you must apply before 1 December. After this date it is not possible to apply for the UCU Scholarship Fund.
Please note: The UCU Scholarship Fund assigns scholarships to students on behalf of the Utrecht Excellence Scholarship Fund; these are not two separate funds. Applicants should therefore not confuse the information offered about the Utrecht Excellence Scholarship (for example on the bachelor and master websites).
Next to our regular scholarships from UCU Fund, we award an annual Rosemary Orr Scholarship for a student applying to UCU. This scholarship offers financial assistance to students who demonstrably have overcome adversity by showing perseverance and leadership. Applicants should write an essay, a short story or another text that coveys their story, one typed A4 page at maximum. This essay should be uploaded in the application form as part of the UCU Scholarship Fund application.
As an EEA student you also might be eligible to receive student financing from DUO, subject to certain conditions. Student financing may consist of a grant, loan, travel allowance and/or other components. Please visit the DUO website for more information.
Utrecht University, including University College Utrecht, has been approved for Federal Financial Aid for American Students (FAFSA, FFEL). As a U.S. citizen, you can apply for a federal loan while studying at University College Utrecht or Utrecht University. More information.
The UCU Student Aid Fund supports students who experience financial hardship after enrolment at University College Utrecht. The support depends on each applicant's financial situation, but is unlikely to exceed € 250, and is mainly meant for covering the costs such as for study books or field trips. More information.
