As a full-time board member, you can, in some cases, apply for a one-off tuition fee waiver. That means you can enrol without having to pay tuition fees.

Who can apply for a tuition fee waiver?

You're eligible for a tuition fee waiver if:

  • You're enrolled in a full-time programme at the UvA and you pay statutory tuition fees. Unfortunately, this means that students from outside the EU are not eligible.
  • You're receiving an Administrative Body Membership Grant because you are serving on the board of a UvA recognised student organisation, a faculty student council or the Central Student Council.
  • You're serving as a board member full-time - for which you receive 12 months of board grant from the Profiling Fund.
  • You've haven't had a tuition fee waiver in the past.
  • You sign a declaration in which you state that you will not attend any classes, sit examinations, request your degree certificate or receive guidance in your study and research activities at the UvA or at any other government-funded institution during the entire academic year in which you serve on the board.

Application deadline

Apply for a tuition fee waiver for serving on a board before the start of the academic year in which you are a board member. The deadline is 1 September.
