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 full-time Bachelor students. If you are in the top 40 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. The Excellency scholarship is available for students starting their study in September or February and for those who have already earned themselves a NL scholarship.
Please note, that the Excellency scholarship is not an entry scholarship.
