T&C

Applicants granted the Erasmus University Holland Scholarship should be aware that it applies to only one academic year and he/she can only receive the scholarship once.

The scholarship will only be awarded when the applicant will start with the same programme for which he/she has applied and for which the applicant has received admission. Switching programmes after being awarded a scholarship is not possible.

The number of applications each year exceeds the number of available scholarships. No rights can therefore be derived when the above-mentioned minimum application criteria are met.

To be able to provide as many applicants with a scholarship, only 1 type of scholarship will be awarded to 1 applicant. This means you may apply for multiple scholarships; however, a combination of multiple scholarships will not be awarded.

Erasmus School of Economics reserves the right to withdraw the offer for the Erasmus University Holland Scholarship if the applicant fails to comply with the terms and conditions.

Value

The Erasmus University Holland Scholarship amount of € 10.000 is split into two parts: € 5.000 is used as reduction on the tuition fee, the other € 5.000 will be received by the student through 10 monthly payments. The amount of € 5.000 that the student will receive, can be used as part of the required living fee deposit for the immigration procedure (which is € 900 times 12 months = € 10.800).

This means, should you be awarded with an Erasmus University Holland Scholarship, you are to transfer the remaining part of your tuition fee (€ 9.600 for 2021/2022 – € 5.000 Erasmus University Holland Scholarship tuition fee reduction = € 4.600) + remaining deposit for the cost of living (€ 10.800 – € 5.000 Erasmus University Holland Scholarship = € 5.800) + IND handling fee (€ 174) before 15 May.
