Radboud University Scholarships

There are 10 scholarships available at Radboud University.

Netherlands Fellowship Programmes

Eligibility requirements

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promote capacity building within organisations in 51 countries by providing training and education through fellowships for professionals. The NFP has 3 sub programmes for individual fellowships:  Master's degree programmes, short courses (not available at Radboud University) and PhD studies. The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation.

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. You have to be nominated by your employer to be eligible for the fellowship. There also has to be a clear need for training within the context of your organisation. After completing your training you return to your original workplace, and this ensures the training is embedded within your organisation.

Application details

In order to apply for the NFP you must first apply for the Master's programme of your choice. However, you do not need to wait until you have been officially accepted to study at Radboud University before you apply for the NFP. You can apply for the NFP as soon as you have applied for an eligible Master's programme.

However, it would be strongly advisable to apply for a Master's programme well in advance of the NFP deadline. This because you must be accepted by the university at the end of the deadline. Our website contains more information about the assessment period after you submit your application for a Master's programme.
