Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) Talent Grant Scholarship 2024

As a scholarship mentor, I understand the intricacies and challenges international students face while planning your study abroad, especially when finances come into play. The Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) offers a helping hand through the Talent Grant, aimed at supporting gifted students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) for the class of 2024. So if you’re from a non-EEA country, excluding Switzerland and Suriname, and are dreaming of studying at AHK, this guide is crafted just for you.

What is the Talent Grant?

The Talent Grant is a financial initiative by AHK to make education more accessible to international students who demonstrate exceptional merit but need financial support. For the academic year 2024-2025, the grant provides a significant tuition fee reduction of €3,825. This discount bridges the gap between the higher institutional fees that you, as an international student, would pay and the lower, government-subsidized statutory tuition.

Who Qualifies for the Talent Grant?

Eligibility for the Talent Grant is specific and includes the following criteria:

  • Nationality: You must be a national from a non-EEA country (excluding Suriname and Switzerland).
  • Merit: Your application should showcase your exceptional academic or creative talents.
  • Residency: You will need to live in the Netherlands throughout your studies at AHK.
  • Tuition Status: You must be enrolled in a program where you’re required to pay institutional tuition fees, which are higher than the subsidized fees.
  • Admission: If you’re not yet an AHK student, you must have successfully passed the entrance exam.

How Can You Apply?

Securing the Talent Grant involves a few careful steps:

  1. Get Assessed: Before anything, your talent and eligibility need to be assessed by the head of your study program. This is to ensure you meet the high standards of merit required.
  2. Application Form: If deemed eligible, you’ll receive an application form ( for the Talent Grant.
  3. Submit Before the Deadline: Mark your calendar—the application must be in by 1 June 2024.
  4. Await the Decision: Your application will go through a ranking process by the academy director and the final approval comes from the Executive Board of AHK and expect to hear back by 15 July 2024.
