Scholarships for postgraduate courses are available from different sources. Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation has no funds for financing participants and regrets it is unable to assist applicants in obtaining sponsorship.
The most common are the Netherlands Fellowship Programme (NFP), MENA and StuNed.
Netherlands Fellowship Programme:
The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) and NICHE entered a new phase on 1 July 2017 and will continue as 'Kennisontwikkelingsprogramma' (KOP).
This 5-year programme aims to advance the capacity, knowledge and quality of both individuals and institutions of higher and vocational education.
NFP fellowships are available for a number of countries. Please be aware that this application process takes time and effort, and requires several documents. We therefore recommend that you start as soon as possible. Since the number scholarships available is limited, an application may not always lead to a positive result.
After registration for the short course at CDI, you will receive an admission letter with instructions on how to submit your NFP fellowship application in the ATLAS register. Please note that different short courses may have different NFP application deadlines. Please check the website of the course for details.
MENA Scholarship Programme (MSP):
The MENA Scholarship Programme (MSP) offers scholarships to professionals for short courses in the Netherlands.
The MSP is open to professionals who are nationals of - and living and working in - one of these countries: Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria*, Tunisia.
* MSP is currently not open to professionals applying from Syria. Applicants with Syrian nationality may apply if they are residing in one of the other MSP countries.
StuNed Scholarship Programme:
StuNed or Studeren in Nederland is a scholarship programme that is an integral part of the bilateral cooperation between the Governments of the Netherlands and Indonesia.
