The University of Amsterdam (UvA) offers several grants and funds.
Some administrative positions (in the board of a study or student association or a representative advisory body) demand so much time that they can cause a delay in completing your studies. It is possible to get additional financial assistance for administrative activities.
The Amsterdam University Fund provides support for special academic and student facilities that cannot be covered by government funding alone. Grants may be applied for individual study trips (work placements, exchanges, thesis research, field work), group trips, or projects for students.
Erasmus Grants are awarded to students who go to study or go on a work placement for between three months and an entire academic year at a European partner institute as part of an exchange programme between UvA and the institute.
For emergency situations that lead to financial problems for students, claims may be made to the emergency fund. The situation must be acute, incidental, of limited scope, and resolvable.
Through the Profiling Fund, the UvA offers specific students the possibility to apply for financial support if they fall behind schedule in their studies as a result of exceptional circumstances (such as illness or disability).
