Funding Information for the Netherlands/Nederland

If you meet the nationality or residency requirements to be eligible for Dutch student finance you must attach the required documentation (evidence of the nationality or residency requirements) to your EUI Application. To do this, please use the passport/ID attachment field of the EUI Online Application form.

Eligibility Criteria:

In addition to the general EUI application criteria, to be eligible for a Dutch EUI grant you must meet the following two eligibility criteria to apply:

1) the minimum academic requirements:

  • you must have successfully obtained a doctoral diploma or Master’s degree;


2) the nationality/residence requirements:

  • a) Dutch nationals: must submit a copy of a valid Dutch passport or ID-card (front and back) with your EUI application;
  • b) Non-Dutch nationals:

You must reside in the Netherlands and meet the nationality/residence requirements for Dutch student finance as defined by DUO at the time of your EUI application. However, those employed in the Netherlands must be employed for at least one year prior to the EUI application deadline. This also applies to applicants whose partner is employed in the Netherlands.

You can check whether you are eligible for Dutch student finance on the DUO website. The requirements for both residents with -and without a residence permit are indicated on their website, including the documentation needed to support eligibility.


Submit the documents to support eligibility with your EUI application using the passport/ID attachment field of the EUI Online Application form.

Dual nationality: if you hold dual nationality (Dutch/other nationality) and you meet all criteria as shown above you may apply.

Eligibility is carefully verified for each applicant. Applications that do not meet the criteria (shown above) will not be taken in to further consideration.
