Orange Knowledge Programme - Short Courses

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 new programme is called Orange Knowledge Programme. 

The Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) merges the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) and NICHE into a single integrated approach.

This 5-year programme consists of 3 components:

  • Individual scholarships for professionals;
  • Tailor-made group training programmes;
  • Collaboration projects between knowledge institutions focusing on sustainable improvement of higher and professional education capacity.

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 details on coverage can be found in the Obligations for OKP fellowship holders.
