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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
