Fellowships for master’s degree programmes
The NFP master’s degree programmes is one of the sub-programmes of the NFP. The duration of the programmes varies between 9 and 24 months.

NFP fellowships can be obtained for a selected number of master’s degree programmes. The Dutch higher education institutions offer many international master’s degree programmes, covering almost every field of study. Candidates can receive a postgraduate education and earn one of the following Dutch degrees: Master of Arts, Master of Science or a Professional Master’s degree.

A Master of Arts or a Master of Science degree is an academic degree, usually awarded by traditional (research-oriented) universities on completion of a postgraduate research-oriented course of one to two years in duration. Professional master’s degrees are awarded by different types of higher education institutions that offer more professionally-oriented programmes. Professional master’s degrees are usually of a shorter duration than a research-oriented master’s degree programme.

The fellowship

An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that the fellowship holder should continue to receive (at least partially) during the study period. The allowance is considered to be a contribution towards the cost of living for one person, whether in the Netherlands or in another country. It should be noted that NFP allowances are not sufficient to support family members, either in the home country or in the Netherlands.

An NFP fellowship, which is granted for the duration of the programme, is intended to provide a contribution towards the costs of living and to cover the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance, thesis research, , as specified in the NFP booklet ‘Rules and Regulations for fellowship holders’.
