When you are a student at HZ University of Applied Sciences and you are going abroad for a study or internship outside of the Netherlands, you can apply for a grant or scholarship.
HZ offers a HZ Grant for students who study or do an unpaid internship outside the EU. As far as we know, HZ is the only university of applied sciences in the Netherlands that subsidises its students with a grant.
This scholarship is meant for full-time HZ students who want to study, do research or an internship outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The EEA consists of the EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The Holland Scholarship is a scholarship made available by the Dutch Ministry of Education Culture and Science together with Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. The scholarship amounts to a one-off payment of € 1,250 and is meant as a contribution towards your study expenses.
If you do part of your study or do your internship at an HZ partner institute, you can apply for this grant. The Erasmus+ is a grant that the European Union has made available in order to stimulate students from its member states to gain experience abroad during their education; to enhance their languages, to become acquainted with other cultures, etc. The grant is a contribution to the expenses you will make, it will most probably not cover all the expenses.
