Apply for a grant - student

Travel, study and project grants are available for students, individually and in groups. Students often have opportunities for study, fieldwork or internships abroad. The Amsterdam University Fund helps make these possible, as well as special grants for refugees studying at the UvA.

Deadlines application

Strict deadlines apply to applications for grants. Applications must be received by the deadline even if you're not certain whether the trip will go ahead.

  • Deadline 27 February 2022 (for departures between 1 May and 31 July). 
  • Deadline 22 May 2022 (for departures between 1 August and 31 October). 
  • Deadline 4 September 2022 (for departures between 1 November and 31 January).
  • Deadline 30 October 2022 (for departures between 1 February and 30 April). 

Submit your application using the online form and include all the required information.

  • Individual travel grant

    Travel is the key to many enriching academic experiences: a symposium in Canada, a conference in China, or an entire semester abroad. A travel grant from the Amsterdam University Fund can make the difference for Bachelor's and Master's students as they supplement and personalize their studies.

  • Group travel grant

    Even when not required for a degree, a study trip can yield invaluable insights. In groups, though, it can be prohibitively expensive. Thanks to the Amsterdam University Fund, travel grants are available for groups of five or more UvA students, helping make inspirational, large-scale study trips feasible.

  • Student project grant

    UvA students are creative proponents of academic practice, academic and cultural heritage, and UvA student activity. When conventional university funding isn’t available, the Amsterdam University Fund helps bridge the gap, providing grants for projects, events, and activities organized by and for UvA students.

  • Study grant for students in exceptional instances

    For students who are in dire financial need, the Amsterdam University Fund may award a one-off, specific study grant. For further details about this grant, please contact the Amsterdam University Fund:
