European Union citizens who are registered as full-time students in Dutch higher education and who are younger than 30 can apply to the 'Informatie Beheer Groep' (IB-Groep) for a study grant to cover part of their tuition fees.
This request should be submitted to the 'IB-Groep' before 1st January of the academic year concerned. The fee is a grant, not a loan, and therefore does not have to be repaid. More information can be found on the website of the IB-group and on grants for EU and EEA students.
