What is an NFP or MSP scholarship?

NFP stands for Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP), MSP stands for MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Scholarship Programme. NFP scholarships are available for 51 countries, MSP scholarships for 10 countries.

An NFP or MSP scholarship will pay for the full cost of your travel and visa (if required), accommodation and meals, insurance and the course fee. The NFP and the MSP scholarship programmes are funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and administered by Nuffic, the Netherlands Organisation for International Cooperation in Higher Education.

There are many more applications than there are scholarships available. Not everyone can apply for an NFP or MSP scholarship. Therefore, it is important that you meet all the RNTC and Nuffic criteria (see below).
