Financing your study in geo-information science and earth observation
Are you considering to (further) study at ITC but not yet succeeded to secure funding? Courses offered by ITC are eligible for different scholarships. Start by enquiring at your own Ministry of Education or Department of Education as they may have details of scholarship or bursary opportunities for students wishing to study overseas. In addition the online search engine Grantfinder gives you a complete overview of all scholarships available for studying in Holland.
It is advisable to send out multiple funding applications as soon as possible. Most scholarships require you to complete your application procedures before applying for the scholarship. Because of strict deadlines, make sure you apply for admission at least two months before the scholarship deadline. Application for a scholarship is a procedure totally separate from the application for course entry and is entirely your own responsibility. ITC plays no part in the process of securing a scholarship.
For your convenience, we have listed the most important scholarship programmes for ITC course participants below. Indicate your country of birth, this leads to an overview of fellowships programmes that might be interesting for you.

- Fellowships are usually intended as a substantial contribution towards most basic expenses but do not cover all costs in full.
- Although fellowships from the Dutch government, EDF or one of the United Nations agencies do include a fixed allowance for books, lecture notes and personal drawing and calculating equipment, this seldom covers the actual cost of these study materials.
