Financial Support

We do not offer any scholarships as you might be a certified nurse with a European degree in order to work in the Netherlands. However, we are part of the European Union projects like EURES, Your First Europe Job, REACTivate, and the European Youth Portal that provide financial support.

EURES is a program that was created by the European Union to give incentive and help people to relocate to another country.  The objective of the platform helps European job seekers find a job within the EU but outside their hometown. Within EURES, there are 3 projects which you can use: Your First Europe Job, REACTivate and the European Youth Portal that provide financial support.

Depending on your age, you can qualify to one of these projects and they will provide you financial support €1,050 euros for relocation purposes and will cover the cost for the logistics of finding a job such as: traveling for a job interview, translation of documents, etc.
