Inholland Knowledge Grant for non-EU/EER students 2020/2021 (*)

The Knowledge Grant* is an allowance awarded on a year-by-year basis, which promotes the enrolment of high-quality international (degree-seeking) students. A high-quality student is a student that completes their programme at Inholland University of Applied Sciences within the nominal study duration (thus, attaining 60 ECTS per year, not including exemptions).

Eligible international students are those students who meet the following criteria:

  • You are enrolled for a full-time programme at Inholland University of Applied Sciences for the first time and also arrange to re-enroll in the subsequent years;
  • You do not have an acquired nationality of the EEA, Surinam or Switzerland;
  • You are required to pay the institutional tuition fees;
  • You started the degree programme in or after academic year 2016 - 2017 (Please note: different criteria and allowances may apply depending on the start year of your current degree) 

Students who have received a Holland Scholarship are not eligible for a Knowledge Grant in that particular year.

Please note:
