About the NHL Stenden Excellency Scholarship
The NHL Stenden Excellency Scholarship is a performance-based financial award, which is granted to our best-performing non-EU/EEA bachelor students. If you are in the top 40 of non-EU/EEA bachelor students at the end of your first or second year at NHL Stenden, you will be awarded a scholarship of €2,000. This is based on the number of ECTS (study points) you have acquired in the previous year at NHL Stenden. If you do exceptionally well two years in a row, you may be awarded a maximum of €4,000 over the course of your studies at NHL Stenden.
Please note that the Excellency Scholarship is not an entry scholarship.
How do you qualify?
You can apply for the NHL Stenden Excellency Scholarship if you are a non-EU/EEA bachelor student who started in or after September 2020 and you earn at least 54 ECTS (study points) during either your first or second year of study at NHL Stenden. The 40 best-performing NHL Stenden non-EU/EEA bachelor students per academic year (only year 1 and/or year 2) will be granted a €2,000 scholarship. If more than 40 students qualify annually, only those with the highest amount of ECTS (60, 59, 58 and so on) will be selected. The NHL Stenden Excellency Scholarship is also available for non-EU/EEA bachelor students starting in February, for students following an NHL Stenden’s pre-bachelor language course, and students who have already earned themselves a Holland Scholarship.
Students selected by NHL Stenden will be informed personally. The amount awarded will be paid to selected students during the first period of the subsequent academic year. The NHL Stenden Excellency Scholarship is not awarded as a tuition fee waiver.
Detailed information including application instructions is available to current NHL Stenden students on our intranet (look for Scholarships & Grants).
