The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) offered by the Dutch Government provides financial support to attend training courses (as well as Master’s and PhD studies) in the Netherlands. The fellowships cover costs of living, the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance and thesis research.
NFP aims to help increase both the number and the competencies of skilled staff at a wide range of NGOs and government. After the completion of the training, the participants return back to their original workplace to further impact skills and knowledge with their communities.
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.
The fellowships are awarded in a very competitive selection to highly motivated professionals with at least three years’ work experience who are in a position to introduce the newly-acquired skills and knowledge into their employing organisation.
To be eligible for an NFP fellowship, you must be admitted to the short course, for which you would like to use the fellowship.
