AUC Scholarship Fund (ASF) supports excellence and diversity in the AUC student body by facilitating access to the AUC programme for talented low-income and minority students. The ASF scholarship recipients enrich AUC’s community by diversifying the student body and bringing a broad depth of knowledge, experiences, and thoughts.

In a multicultural city such as Amsterdam, it is essential that outstanding minority students are not only invited to join AUC’s selective honours programme, but are granted the means to participate. Through scholarships offered by the ASF, talented students are able to work toward academic success and realise their enormous potential.

Donations from a variety of sponsors and stakeholders support the ASF, and together with AUC, the ASF empowers the next generation of changemakers and international leaders. The AUC Scholarship Fund is an independent, separate foundation (stichting) run by the ASF Board.


The AUC Scholarship Fund offers two levels of full ASF Scholarship:

EU students: EUR 5100 per year

Non-EU students: EUR 15300 per year


  • You must have also applied for a place at AUC. Admission to AUC is a separate process. For more information on applications and admissions, see the links in the left-hand menu. Only AUC students can receive an ASF scholarship.
  • Your family income has to be below the threshold
  • Excellent school results. These are considered to be an indicator of your academic merit. Please note that the ASF Selection Committee will not see your AUC admission application and they will only receive information on your average secondary school grade (GPA). If you want to communicate anything more to the Committee about your school results and academic ability, make sure to include it in your letter of motivation. This space can also be used to explain why you may not have high grades at the moment, but still believe you can perform well at AUC.
  • Strong motivation to study liberal arts and sciences at AUC. The ASF Selection Committee will be looking for this in your letter of motivation.
  • The ASF Selection Committee is also interested in your extracurricular accomplishments and activities relevant for AUC. Not only your individual accomplishments but also your contributions to the community or society, as well as your (potential) leadership profile and skills. Make sure to write about these in your letter of motivation.
  • First-generation university students and students from non-Western backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
  • Financial need. In other words, explain in your letter of motivation why it is important that you receive a scholarship.
