As well as the university’s financial support for students, entrepreneurial scholarships and diverse international scholarships, there are also a number of other scholarship programmes available to students of Leiden University.
Students who are not eligible for other sources of funding may request financial support from trustee funds ('curatorenfondsen' in Dutch).
Trustee funds can be utilised to contribute towards the academic expenses of students who are unable to obtain funding elsewhere. They can also be used to provide one-off travel subsidies for students going abroad for study-related activities. The student’s financial situation is always taken into account in decisions concerning the awarding of trustee funds.
See the application procedure for trustee funds.
You can request more information about the awarding of trustee funds from a student counsellor.
