Students of the University of Amsterdam can apply for a grant for making an individual study trip abroad. These grants exist thanks to the support of Amsterdam University Fund donors.
Students can apply for a travel grant once during the Bachelor’s phase and once during the Master’s phase. For Bachelor's students, the minimum length of the trip is one month. Master's students can also apply for a travel grant for a stay shorter than a month for, for example, a conference visit.
Individual travel grants are not intended to cover all your costs; rather, they are a supplementary contribution. The level of the grant depends on the destination and length of stay. By november 2017 the following amounts apply.
|Duration and destination||< 3 months||> 3 months|
|Outside Europe||€ 700||€ 900|
