Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Often, financing your EMBA is a challenge. Below you will find a list of general as well as country-specific financial aid possibilities currently available. Since it is impossible to list every opportunity here, we suggest researching financial assistance offered from your own country. The information on RSM Scholarships may be reviewed and updated throughout the year, and are offered discretionary by the RSM Scholarship Awards Committee.  Please revisit this part of our website for any amendments to our scholarship offerings. Candidates that secure company sponsorship for the EMBA programme are not eligible for a scholarship award.

If you have any specific questions you do not find answered here, please contact us at the Scholarships Office, scholarships@rsm.nl.
