Amount of support

Determining the amount of support

If you get behind in your studies during the academic year, the student counsellor will assess your application to decide whether the extenuating circumstances and ensuing delay can be recognized as such. The duration of delay caused by exceptional circumstances is expressed in terms of recognized months. The following aspects are taken into account when determining the number of recognized months: the duration of the exceptional circumstances, the actual delay in relation to the program schedule, and the time needed to make up for the delay. You will only be given student financial support for recognized months of delay.

The number of recognized months you are due is assessed individually. However, there are maximum periods for:

  • Pregnancy: four months
  • Membership of Program Committee/Department Council/University Council: one month per academic year.
  • Top talent: maximum 12 months for the total period of enrollment at TU/e.
  • Administrative grant: nine months per academic year, with a maximum of 14 months for the total period of enrollment at TU/e.

Level of support

One recognized month is equal to € 455,69 (2022-2023 academic year) for students entitled to an administrative grant. For international students (Non EEA) doing a board year who pay the high tuition fee rate, a higher amount per month applies namely €1,238,27 (Bachelor) and €1663,27 (Master) during academic year 2022-2023.
Students eligible for assistance due to force majeure receive € 319,95 per month. This amount can be supplemented with 69% of the supplementary grant (DUO) to which you may be entitled. See also: Student Financial Support (Profileringsfonds) Regulations 2022-2023.

The monthly amount for non-EEA students who receive assistance due to force majeure and who pay institutional tuition fees is €1102,53 (Bachelor’s) and €1527,53 (Master's ) for the academic year 2022-2023.


If you do not agree with the student counselor´s provisional decision to reject your application, you have two weeks to respond before the final decision is made. If you do not respond within this period, the decision will be finalized. If you do not agree with the final decision, you can file an objection with the Executive Board within six weeks of the date of the decision. You can file your objection online, using the digital complaints form on the website:
