Netherlands Master Scholarships in Education and Teacher Training

Overview

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) are designed to promote capacity building within organisations in 61 countries by providing training and education to mid-career staff. The NFP is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation. The overall aim of the NFP is to help alleviate qualitative and quantitative shortages of skilled manpower within a wide range of governmental, private and non-governmental organisations. This is done by offering fellowships to mid-career professionals to improve the capacity of their employing organisations.

The Dutch higher education institutions offer many international master’s degree programmes. The Dutch Scholarships allow candidates to receive a postgraduate education and earn one of the following Dutch degrees: Master of Arts, Master of Science, or a Professional Master’s degree

• a multinational corporation (for instance Shell, Unilever etc.)
or

– have completed and submitted an NFP master’s degree programme fellowship application including all the required documentation before the applicable NFP fellowship application deadline;
– be employed in an area to which the study will make a relevant contribution;


– have a clear-cut, functional relationship with a relevant organisation and be in a position to introduce the newly acquired skills and knowledge into that organisation;
– be available for the entire period of the programme and be physically and mentally able to take part in the entire programme;
– endorse the objective and the aim of the NFP. The aim of the NFP cannot be reached if the fellowship holder does not return to his or her own country. Nuffic would like to urge fellowship holders to return to their home country upon finishing the course or programme to meet the NFP aim in the most effective way.

The fellowship

An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that the fellowship holder must continue to receive (at least partially) during the study period. The allowance is considered to be a contribution towards the cost of living for one person, whether in the Netherlands or in another country. The fellowship can cover the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel,
insurance and thesis research.
