2 Netherlands Fellowship Programmes The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) promote capacity building within organisations in 51 countries by providing training and education through fellowships for professionals. The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation. The NFP has 3 sub programmes for individual fellowships: master's degree programmes, short courses and PhD Studies. In addition, there are separate funds for alumni activities and Tailor- Made Training. Read more about the alumni activities on the website of the Holland Alumni network. Read more about Tailor-Made Training on The aim of the NFP 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. The NFP is meant for professionals who are nationals of and work and live in one of the 51 NFP countries. The countries have been classified into two categories (I and II). Category I countries are priority countries and will receive more fellowships. Candidates have to be nominated by their employer to be eligible for the fellowship. There also has to be a clear need for training within the context of the organisation. Each embassy has its own focus area to support the development goals of the Netherlands in each NFP country. The overall objective is to spend 35% of the budget on grants and study programmes in food security and private sector development. The fellowships are further prioritised as follows: * 50% of the budget is for applications from Sub Sahara Africa. * 50% of fellowships has to be awarded to female applicants. The fellowship The short courses organized by MDF are listed under a specific fellowship application deadline. Deadlines: End October, End March, End July. An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that you should continue to receive during the study period in the Netherlands. The allowance is a contribution towards your 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. The fellowships are awarded in a very competitive selection to highly motivated professionals who are in a position to introduce the newly-acquired skills and knowledge into their employing organisation. ref:information for applicants about NFP II-deadline March 2015.docx HA Page 1 (8)

The application you submit must be complete with all the required documentation according to the required formats. The application must be submitted online through the candidate registration form before the fellowship application deadline.

MDF trainers will review your information to check your suitability for the course. In case we need more information from you, we will contact you. If you still have any questions after reading this information, the information package and the FAQ and have problems with your registration in Atlas, you may contact the registration department of MDF. Fellowship selection process Only a maximum number of candidates can be considered for a fellowship. Therefore the process has a preliminary step. This step is to decide which candidates will be considered for an NFP fellowship. If a candidate is considered for a fellowship his or her application will be assessed. About the eligibility check The Netherlands embassy in your country will check your application on the eligibility criteria. If your application does not meet the eligibility criteria it will be rejected regardless of any effort, time and money you put into it. Assessment process If your application is eligible it will be further assessed. The Netherlands embassy will assess the applications on: the extent to which you fit into the target group of the training programme how well you would be able to implement the newly-acquired knowledge in your daily work; to what extent the knowledge will contribute to the development of your home country. Your application will be assessed according to the country focus an embassy may have set. If for example you submit an application for an NFP fellowship in the field of Health Sciences while Agriculture is a country focus, your chances of obtaining a fellowship will decrease. ref:information for applicants about NFP II-deadline March 2015.docx HA Page 5 (8)

7 how well your plans for the time after returning to your employer are described and how easily they can be implemented. The assessment leads to a ranking of all eligible applications. The selection method takes the NFP policy principles (women, Sub Sahara Africa, food security and priority countries) into consideration. After the selection You will be informed about the outcome of the selection by mail or . If your application is successful, we will contact you by mail or to make all necessary (logistical) arrangements. ref:information for applicants about NFP II-deadline March 2015.docx HA Page 6 (8)
