Amsterdam Merit Scholarships (AMS), Netherlands

Wednesday, July 17, 2013
The University of Amsterdam offers Master’s Scholarships to outstanding students from outside the European Economic Area.


The Amsterdam Merit Scholarships (AMS) have specifically been designed by the Universiteit van Amsterdam to offer talented and hard-working non-EU/EEA students the opportunity to pursue a degree in one of the academic fields covered by the UvA. The AMS programme is highly selective: only applicants with excellent study results and motivation may receive a scholarship.

Eligibility 
Candidates wishing to take part in the Amsterdam Merit Scholarship programme must meet the following requirements:

  • Hold a non-EU/EEA passport and not be eligible for support under the Dutch system of study grants and loans ("Studiefinanciering"; for more information please refer to: www.DUO.nl). The scholarship office should be notified as soon as possible of any change in nationality, type of residence permit, and/or possible “Studiefinanciering” support, throughout the academic year.
  • Be fully admitted to a degree programme at the University of Amsterdam which is registered at the Central Register of Higher Education Programmes (CROHO; for more information refer to: www.DUO.nl).
    For more information about general application requirements, please consult the individual programme descriptions at www.uva.nl/international for study programmes taught in English, or www.uva.nl/onderwijs for study programmes taught in Dutch.
    Scholarship continuation is not guaranteed when a candidate changes his or her degree programme.
  • Be admitted to a Bachelor's or Master's programme at the University of Amsterdam for the first time. AMS will not be awarded to candidates who are admitted for a second Bachelor's or Master's programme at the University of Amsterdam.
  • Be able to comply with Dutch visa regulations (follow the link to the IND website below).
  • Be enrolled at the UvA as full-time student for the academic year and the programme for which the scholarship is awarded.
  • The candidate should not receive a full coverage scholarship for the same period of study as the AMS scholarship. Notify the scholarships office when another full scholarship has been awarded and accepted.
  • Scholarship continuation for subsequent year(s) of study depends upon satisfactory study progress. The programme you will be enrolled in, as it depends on the curriculum and rules and regulations of the department, sets the standard for satisfactory progress, and the time and manner in which progress will be measured. Please be advised that you are expected to gain approximately 80% of credits in any one year.
