Outstanding achievers

Have you made outstanding achievements in your education and personal development? And are you a national of a country outside the EU/EEA? Then you’re a good candidate for one of the HAN scholarships below. Don't meet these requirements? Then you might want to search for scholarships elsewhere. For example, with scholarship organizations in your own country or on the Study in Holland website.

What are the HAN scholarships?

What are the requirements?

  • You are a national of a country outside the EU/EEA
  • You have not previously been enrolled in a degree at a university or university of applied sciences in the Netherlands
  • You have been accepted into a full-time English-taught degree program at HAN
  • You have an IELTS score of at least 6.5, a TOEFL iBT score of at least 90 or a Cambridge Certificate (CAE or CPE)

Does a scholarship cover all the costs?

No. These scholarships help you to finance your studies. You still have to meet the requirements of the financial guarantee.

How are the scholarships paid?

Your scholarship is paid in 2 terms: in March and September. Are you starting your degree in February? Your scholarship is paid in February each year. Keep in mind that tuition fees are due in the fall semester. You can only receive the payment if:

  • you’re enrolled as a HAN student
  • you have a Dutch bank account in your name

What about dual nationality?

Are you a dual national? Spanish and Venezuelan, for example. So EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA? Your EU/EEA nationality will be used as your 1st nationality. This means you can’t apply for a HAN scholarship. But it does qualify you to pay the EU/EEA tuition fee. This is much lower than the non-EU/EEA fee combined with a HAN scholarship.

Can you combine scholarships?

You cannot combine HAN scholarships. But you can combine a HAN scholarship with a scholarship from another organization.
