U21/LERU Partial Scholarship

You need to be enrolled as a current student at one of the U21/LERU universities at the time of the summer program. Please verify that your home university is a member of the LERU or U21 network. Register for the Cash Course Summer School program and indicate on the registration form that you are applying for a LERU or U21 scholarship. The final decision on granting this scholarship is made by the Tinbergen Institute Summer School office following acceptance of the candidates into the summer program. The € 500 scholarship will be deducted from your tuition fee.
Please note: students enrolled at Dutch universities that are members of LERU or U21 are not eligible for these scholarships.

The Amsterdam University Fund (AUF Travel Grant)

The Amsterdam University Fund (AUF) also supports one international student who registers for a summer course at the University of Amsterdam. The AUF covers part of the travel expenses. Students receiving LERU or U21 scholarships are not eligible for the AUF.
