The Erasmus University Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and Erasmus University Rotterdam. The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to pursue a bachelor or master degree in the Netherlands. The EEA consists of the EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and students from these countries thus cannot apply. The scholarship amounts to € 10.000.
On top of that, Erasmus School of Economics has created a separate fund to support excellent prospective master students. This scholarship concerns a partial tuition fee waiver of € 2.000 for the year 2023-2024. This Excellent Student Waiver is awarded in combination with the Erasmus University Holland Scholarship.
The Erasmus University Holland Scholarship is not applicable to current ESE master students.

- Must be a national of a country that is not part of the European Economic Area (EEA).
