What is Amsterdam Excellence Scholarship 2016?

A prestigious new scholarship programme has recently been launched targeting exceptionally talented Master’s students from outside Europe.

The Amsterdam Excellence Scholarship (AES) is a full scholarship of €25,000, covering tuition and living expenses for one academic year.

There is the possibility of an extension for a second year for two-year Master’s programmes.
The UvA will award up to 15 of these scholarships annually.​


Who can apply for this scholarship ?

Students from any discipline who graduated in the top 10% of their class may apply. Selection is on the basis of academic excellence, ambition and the relevance of the selected Master’s programme to a student’s future career. Scholarship recipients become part of a select community, taking part, for example, in extracurricular activities developed specially for them.
