Netherlands Fellowship Programme - Master

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) is currently being phased out. The last fellowships under NFP, for short courses and master's programmes, were awarded after the April 2017 application deadline.

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) fosters capacity building within organisations in 51 developing countries by providing training and education to their mid-career staff members at the University of Twente. The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes is an initiative of the Dutch government.

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) and NICHE entered a new phase on 1 July 2017. The new programme is now officially named the Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP).  

Scholarship value

The scholarship value depends on the duration of your programme at the University of Twente as well as on the in-house or external components. Please note that the scholarship does not cover all the costs of the study trajectory. It is not a full fellowship. The NFP fellowship coverage is explained in the Obligations for NFP fellowship holders. Those found eligible in the first round yet not selected for an NFP fellowship could be approached by the UT with the offer to participate in the NFP-cofinancing programme. The fellowship coverage for this pilot programme is explained in the Obligations for NFP fellowship holders co-financing.
