ArtEZ Scholarship for Non-EU/EEA Students

For the academic year 2023-2024, ArtEZ has the honour of offering the brightest and most excellent students from outside the European Economic Area an ArtEZ scholarship. 

For the academic year 2023-2024, ArtEZ has the honour of offering non-European students who are among the brightest and most excellent in their field an ArtEZ scholarship. Still, it is not only brightness and excellence that matters: ArtEZ is also committed to strengthen the international diversity of its student population. This is bolstered by the ArtEZ scholarships. While the scholarships surely demand certain records of academic rigour and artistic excellence as a base upon which the student can be reviewed, they also aim to enable diverse kinds of students to cross the often intimidating threshold of art universities. ArtEZ scholarships are monitored and offered as a way of encouraging new voices, vocabularies, grammars, expressions and ambitions for our learning and research programmes and are committed to helping potential students building a critical community of care and responsibility within ArtEZ.

The ArtEZ Scholarship amounts to € 5,000 per chosen student, per year, for the duration of the degree course. The scholarship is paid (or subtracted from the tuition fee), at the beginning of each study year, if and when, the student advances to the next study year. In case of deregistration, the ArtEZ Scholarship will be reimbursed in proportion.

Which criteria do you have to meet?

This scholarship will be granted solely to students who meet the following criteria.
