You can always search for a scholarship on the Study in Holland Grantfinder.

The Honors Scholarship is different. You don’t need to apply for it. The academic board of the study program selects students with outstanding academic results in their 1st year.
Who is eligible? Students who meet the minimum requirements but do not have a HAN Holland or Orange Tulip scholarship.
The payment starts with € 2,500 in the 2nd year. After that you can receive € 2,500 each following year of study. To get this you need to earn the required 45 credits each year.

- You are a national of a country outside the EU/EEA
- You have not previously been enrolled in a degree at a university or university of applied sciences in the Netherlands
- You have been accepted into a full-time English-taught degree program
- You have an IELTS score of at least 6.5, a TOEFL iBT score of at least 90 or a Cambridge Certificate (CAE or CPE)
Your scholarship is paid in 2 terms: in March and September. Are you starting your degree in February? Your scholarship is paid in February each year. Keep in mind that tuition fees are due in the fall semester. You can only receive the payment if:
- you’re enrolled as a HAN student
- you have a Dutch bank account in your name
Are you a dual national? Spanish and Venezuelan, for example. So EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA? Your EU/EEA nationality will be used as your 1st nationality. This means you can’t apply for a HAN scholarship. But it does qualify you to pay the EU/EEA tuition fee. This is much lower than the non-EU/EEA fee combined with a HAN scholarship.
Combining scholarships / other scholarships
You cannot combine HAN scholarships. But you can combine a HAN scholarship with a scholarship from another organization. Find out more about other scholarships on the Study in Holland website.
