This is a closed community for recipients of an NFP (Netherlands Fellowship Programmes) scholarship.

Up until 2017 the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP1) offered fellowships to professionals who were nationals of and worked and lived in an NFP country. The overall aim was to help alleviate qualitative and quantitative shortages of skilled staff at a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organisations. 

The NFP had four sub-programmes that enabled candidates to participate in a range of Dutch master’s degree programmes, short courses or do a PhD. Next to fellowships for individual training the NFP also offered funding for alumni activities and tailor-made training.

In 2017 the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes ended and were replcaed by the Orange Knowledge Programme. More information on the OKP can be found on
