NUFFIC Scholarships

Scholarships from the Dutch Government are handled through Nuffic via:

  1. Netherlands Fellowship Program (NFP)
    The NFP program awarded by the Netherlands organization for international co-operation in higher education (NUFFIC) enables professionals from 51 countries to join MSM programs. The overall aim of NFP is to help alleviate qualitative and quantitative shortages of skilled manpower within a wide range of governmental, private and non-governmental organizations. This by offering fellowships to carefully selected professionals to improve the capacity of their employing organizations. The need for training has to be evident within the context of an organization.
  2. MENA Scholarship Program (MSP)
    The MSP program is a similar program aimed at mid-career professionals from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Syria, Tunisia to join MSM Executive Programs. The aim of MSP is to contribute to the democratic transition in the participating countries. Furthermore, the MSP aims to contribute to capacity building within a wide range of governmental, nongovernmental and private organizations and institutions in the selected countries.

You can only apply for a scholarship for your chosen course during the ‘application window’ for that course. There are three of these windows every year, in October, March and July.
