The Erasmus Trustfonds Scholarships have been founded to support research and education projects, organised by the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) specifically. The fund hereby aims to contribute to the growth and flourishing of Erasmus University.
The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences.
The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to do their Master’s in Holland. The EEA consists of the EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
To be considered for the IMES, you must:
- be planning to start a master programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam;
- have considered to be a high achieving student;
- be unable to finance your study yourself.
Specific deadlines also vary by faculty.
Scholarship Duration and Reward
The student will receive €15.000 for housing, living costs and statutory fee.
