Netherlands Fellowship Programme

    The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promote capacity building within organisations in 50 countries by providing training and education through fellowships for professionals. The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation.


    The target group
    The NFP target group consists of professionals who are nationals of and work and live in an NFP country. The chances of obtaining an NFP fellowship increase if you live and work in Sub-Saharan Africa and/or if you are a woman.
    Mid-career professionals who are nationals of and working and living in one of the NFP countries (check the country list on the NFP website) admitted to one of the programmes of the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. Candidates from Sub-Saharan Africa, women and members of priority groups and/or marginalised regions are specifically invited to apply for an NFP fellowship.
    Next to the general eligibility criteria an embassy or consulate may develop its own country-specific criteria. Candidates are advised to check at the embassy if country-specific criteria apply. Applicants must be nominated by their employers.

    Full scholarships
    An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that you should continue to receive during the study period. The allowance is a contribution towards your costs of living, the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance and thesis research, as specified in the NFP Rules and Regulations for fellowship holders. If applicable, the fellowship holder is expected to cover the difference between the actual costs and the amount of the personal NFP allowances.
