Funding your studies
You may have found your dream degree already in The Hague. But when you are pursuing a graduate degree, one of the key issues is often getting enough funding. A great thing about education in the Netherlands is that tuition fees are fairly low compared to other countries. Also, there is a considerable amount of scholarships and grants available, particularly when you are a non-Dutch student wanting to study in the Netherlands.
Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education, is a major player in helping graduate and undergraduate students fund their studies. Their grant finder will help you filter available scholarships to see which funding opportunities are a match with your background.

- Find funding opportunities via Scholarship Portal.
The Dutch government may be able to help you fund your studies if you are under thirty. If you are a citizen of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland, you are eligible for student funding if you have been living here for 5 consecutive years or more. If you do not meet this requirement, you may qualify depending on your nationality. When neither applies to you, there may still be limited funding available for you.
