Program Description

The Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs awards six full-tuition scholarships, for either a full-year or semester of study at the University of Amsterdam. Three of the full-tuition scholarships are reserved for Zarb School of Business students.

University of Amsterdam programs include European history and culture, humanities, social sciences, languages, and business.  Students will receive Hofstra credit for approved courses. All courses are taught in English.


The program is recommended for students who have attained junior status (a minimum of 60 credits), along with a minimum GPA of 3.4.

Interested and eligible students are requested to visit the Office of Study Abroad Programs and complete a formal application. The deadline for application submission is late February. Outstanding students are interviewed by the Amsterdam Scholarship committee and recommendations are made to the University of Amsterdam which has final say in candidate selection.


Please note that due to the ever-changing circumstance surrounding the impact of Coronavirus in our community and around the world, Study Abroad activity has been suspended through Spring 2021. We will provide information for future Study Abroad programming as soon as possible.
