The University of Twente provides Netherlands Fellowship Program (NFP) for Short Courses for working professionals who are nationals of and work and live in one of the 51 NFP countries. The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation.

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promote capacity building within organisations in 51 countries by providing education and training through fellowships. The countries have been classified into two categories (I & II). Category I countries are priority countries and will receive more fellowships.

The NFP has 3 sub programs for individual fellowships: master's degree programs, short courses and PhD Studies. The objective of this fellowship is to increase the participation and contribution of female candidates in a more sustainable societal response to climate change.

The overall aim of the NFP is to help increase both the number and the competencies of skilled staff at a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organisations. Candidates have to be nominated by their employer to be eligible for the fellowship. There also has to be a clear need for training within the context of the organisation. Each embassy has its own focus area to support the development goals of the Netherlands in each NFP country. The overall objective is to spend 35% of the budget on grants and study programmes in food security and private sector development.

Scholarships to be awarded:

The fellowships are further prioritised as follows:

An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that you should continue to receive during the study period in the Netherlands

The allowance is a contribution towards your costs of living, the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance and thesis research

If applicable, the fellowship holder is expected to cover the difference between the actual costs and the amount of the personal NFP allowances.

The fellowships are awarded in a very competitive selection to highly motivated professionals who are in a position to introduce the newly acquired skills and knowledge into their employing organisation
