  1. Em chào anh ạ. Em là Kiều Hạnh, ở Cần Thơ. Em đang tìm hiểu về học bổng Amsterdam Merit Scholarship. Em có tìm hiểu qua nhiều website nhưng thấy tất cả đều ghi khá chung chung. Em có 1 câu hỏi rất mong anh trả lời giúp em với ạ. Em không rõ là học bổng này có cover toàn bộ các khoản living costs, insurance, visa, plane ticket như các học bổng toàn phần khác không ạ? Em thấy các học bổng của trường thường không cover hết tất cả các khoản này nhưng đọc dòng “The candidate must not receive a full-coverage scholarship from another organisation for the same period of study as the AMS scholarship” em nghĩ nó cover hết nhưng không dám chắc. Em đang dự định nộp hồ sơ trong tháng 2 này nếu học bổng này là toàn phần ạ. Em rất mong anh có thể trả lời giúp em. Em cảm ơn anh rất nhiều ạ.
