Dutch Govt Fellowships for Short Courses for International Students

Sometime it is difficult to get full scholarship for a degree program. But this does NOT mean that students should stop looking for scholarships.

Short Courses Fellowships are one of the best way to enhance your chance to get full scholarship.  By short courses fellowship students can get international exposure and this can be very useful in their long term career development which may help in getting full degree scholarship later.

Many world class universities offer short courses fellowships and Dutch Govt Fellowships are one of the most popular one.

They offer fellowships in many areas, including Agriculture, forestry and fishery, Architecture and town planning, Business administration and
management, Education and Teacher Training, Engineering, Environmental Science, Fine and applied arts and General programmes.

Fellowship Details

An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that the fellowship holder should 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. It should be noted that NFP allowances are not sufficient to support family members, either in the home country or in the Netherlands.

The fellowship can cover the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance and thesis research, as specified in the NFP booklet ‘Rules and regulations for fellowship holders’. Different conditions may apply to e-learning courses or programmes. These conditions are also listed in the Rules and Regulations booklet.
