Scholarships in your home country
It is worth checking out if any scholarships are available in your home country. For example, American students can apply for a Fulbright scholarship and there is an EU-South Africa Scholarship programme for South African students. Your country may offer similar grants. For more information or application forms contact your local Dutch embassy - or ask your present college or university. The website grantfinder.nl also has some useful information on scholarships.
