The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promote capacity building within organisations in 62 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.
Deadline: 07 May 2013
The May 2013 deadline for Master’s Degree programmes and Short Course applications opens 1 March and will close on 7 May 2013, 15.00 CET.
Do not wait until last minute to submit your application. When many applicants log into SOL at the same time, chances are the system will become overloaded and you may miss the deadline. Please note that questions received between 1 May and 7 May 2013 may have a longer response time than the usual two working days.
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.
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.
