The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes
The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) are demand oriented programmes designed to foster institutional development. To maximize the fellowships' impact on capacity-building, NFP funded training must be linked to the institutional development of organizations. A wide range of organizations are eligible - governmetnal, private and non-governmental. The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the budget for development cooperation. The programmes are administered by the Netherlands Organization for International Cooperation in Higher Education (Nuffic).
The NFP target group consists of mid-career professionals, with at least three years of work experience, who are already in employment and who are nationals of and working in one of the selected countries (one of them being Egypt). While fellowships are awarded to individuals, the need for training must occur within the context of the organization for which an applicant works. The training must help the organization to develop its capacity. This means that applicants must be nominated by their employers. In fact, an application without the support of an employer will not be considered. After completing your training as an NFP fellow, you return to your original workplace to ensure the training is embedded within your employing organisation.
The priority areas of the NFP are the following sectors and/or themes:
- Food Security
- Economic development
- Transport & logistics
