Holland Scholarship

The Holland Scholarship is made available by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science in cooperation with 48 Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. The programme aims at students who want to study outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The EEA consists of the EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Are you eligible?

  • You are enrolled as a fulltime Bachelor's or Master's student at Radboud University
  • You are going abroad on study exchange for a minimum period of 7 weeks and your study abroad represents  a minimum of 10 ECTS. This means though that at most of the universities mentioned below you will need to follow courses during a full semester. Furthermore, your faculty/study programme may require that you obtain a more extensive number of ECTS during that semester.

Additional condition is that you will go on exchange to one of the following Radboud University partners:

Scholarship amount

The Holland Scholarship represents a single payment of €1,250 as a contribution for study costs. You will automatically receive an invitation to fill out the online grant application after your application in Osiris for one of the abovementioned partners has been approved. After submitting the online grant application, you need to submit a number of documents (filled out and signed), among which your Learning Agreement (see document below) and in case of any changes to your Learning Agreement later on, you also need to submit a Change Form.

Learning Agreement (docx, 28 kB) (2022/23)

Change Form (docx, 142 kB) (2022/23)

Additional conditions

Please note: if you are going on exchange for a semester to another non-EU partner university than the ones mentioned above, then you might be eligible for the Individual Travel Grant. Unfortunately you cannot combine a Holland Scholarship with an Individual Travel grant. For further questions about this, please contact studentexchange@ru.nl. In case an Erasmus+ non-EU grant is available for your specific destination, the Erasmus+ grant will be given priority over the Holland Scholarship. If that is the case, you will be contacted about this.

Deadline and application

If you are interested in going on exchange to one of these partners in the academic year 2022/23, then please apply before 31 January 2022 through Osiris, or, if applicable, follow the possible earlier faculty application deadline.

If you missed the deadline in January, but in case you still wish to apply for a study exchange to one of the abovementioned partner universities in the 2nd semester of 2022/2023, please contact your faculty’s International Office for more information regarding the availability and submit your application in Osiris before 15 August 2022.

In case you are selected for such an exchange period, you will automatically receive information about the application procedure for a Holland Scholarship.
