Aim of the NFP
The NFP aims to help increase both the number and the competencies of skilled staff at a wide range of government and non-government organisations.

Fellowship holders will improve their knowledge and skills, learn about relevant global developments in their field and build an international network. This way the employing organisation directly invests in staff development and the fellowship holders invest in their further career.

For the Netherlands it also serves to strengthen ties with the fellowship holder’s country.
After completing the training fellowship holders return to their original workplace. This ensures the training is embedded within the organisation.

Types of funding
The NFP offers fellowships for:
  • short courses
  • master’s degree programmes
  • PhD studies

An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that the fellow should continue to receive during the study period. The allowance is a contribution towards the 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.
