The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promote capacity building within organisations in 51 countries by providing fellowships for training and education for professionals. The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the budget for development cooperation.
Scholarships Number and Award:
An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that the fellow should continue to receive during the study period. The allowance is a contribution towards the costs of living, the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance and thesis research. If applicable, the fellowship holder is expected to cover the difference between the actual costs and the amount of the personal NFP allowances.
Education Level & Subject:
The NFP has three sub programmes for individual fellowships:
– Short courses
– Master’s degree programmes
– PhD studies
The NFP is meant for professionals who are nationals of and work and live in one of the 51 NFP countries. The countries have been classified into two categories (I and II). Category I countries are priority countries and will receive more fellowships.
Candidates have to be nominated by their employer to be eligible for the fellowship. There also has to be a clear need for training within the context of the organisation.
How to Apply:
You need to apply directly with a Dutch higher education institution of your choice. Contact the Dutch higher education institution which offers the NFP-qualified course of your choice for application procedures.
Deadline varies depending on the course and the University.
