From September 2024, there are two levels of ASF Scholarship:
*”Non-EEA” refers to those students who will pay the non-statutory tuition fee for AUC (instellingscollegegeld). These are usually students from non-EEA countries
Partial scholarships are also sometimes awarded.
The standard ASF Scholarship is intended to help cover some of the costs of studying at AUC. You will need to be able to supplement a standard ASF scholarship with some of your own money or with other study financing, grants, or scholarships, in order to pay for rent, food, books etc. as well as your tuition fees.
The full-ride ASF Scholarship is intended to be sufficient to cover all of the costs of studying at AUC, including tuition fees. Only a very small number of full-ride scholarships can be awarded each year.
To compare the scholarship levels with the costs of studying at AUC, please follow the link to fees and costs.
ASF Scholarships are paid directly to the students in 10 instalments per year (starting in mid-September, one instalment per month, no payments in July and August). You will need to have a Dutch bank account in your own name in order to receive scholarship instalments. Furthermore, you will be responsible for paying the AUC tuition fees yourself. The ASF cannot automatically pay your tuition fees for you.
In order to start receiving an ASF Scholarship:
We have high expectations of ASF Scholarship holders. You will be expected to maintain good academic standing during your time at AUC, with good grades and no credit deficit, or you could risk losing your scholarship. You will be evaluated after one year of study at AUC, and your ASF Scholarship will be awarded automatically for another year if you:
At the end of your second year, you will be evaluated again in similar fashion. Your ASF Scholarship will be awarded automatically for another year if you:
If you are not meeting one or more of these conditions at the end of your first or second year, you will be offered an opportunity to submit a motivated request for renewal in which you can explain any extenuating circumstances. Your AUC tutor will also be contacted and their advice/recommendation sought before a decision on renewal is taken. No renewal is possible in case of a negative BSA decision.
