Other financial aid

Other scholarships, grants or loans may be available to students from particular countries. To see more information about external scholarships, please check the links below or consult the study abroad office in your country of residence.

Deadlines for application for other scholarships

If you wish to apply for a scholarship other than above, please keep in mind the deadlines for application to a programme.

Students who are applying for a scholarship and therefore need early notification of admission, are advised to apply at least 3 months before the desired date of notification, and before applying for the scholarship itself. Please indicate with your application the date by which you need to receive notification. Timely handling will be aimed for, but cannot be guaranteed.
