Every year, VSBfonds gives funds to graduating students who want to continue their education overseas after completing their degree. This award cannot be used for a research project or internship. You choose the foreign school on your own and make the necessary arrangements for admission. The government of the nation in which you want to study must accredit the educational institution. If not, you will need to provide proof that the institution and study plan you have selected are of a caliber that satisfies Dutch higher education requirements.

-you are a full-time learner earning your bachelor’s or master’s degree;
-you are a naturalized Dutch citizen or have a clear relationship to the Netherlands;
-you possess a strong sense of motivation and sufficient language skills in the language of your intended country;
-you create a study schedule that corresponds with the course work you have finished.
The scholarship is worth 10,000 €.
