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 UvA.

  • 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 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 medical students

    Medical students are eligible to apply for a study grant from the Spinoza Foundation. This grant is awarded only in exceptional cases. For further details, please contact Ms. N.V. Blankendal of the International Office AMC.
