On 4 September 2014 a call has been published for new PhD candidates from 51 development countries under the Netherlands Fellowships Programme (NFP). NFP is a scholarship programme of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. PhD candidates from the University of Groningen who want to apply, can submit their application via RUG Grantfinder. During the past NFP PhD programme about 20 PhD students received a scholarship for doing a PhD in Groningen, divided over all faculties. Candidates who intend to submit for a Fellowship, will be screened by the Graduate Schools in advance. The final selection will be made by Nuffic & the Dutch Ministry. Research & Valorisation coordinates the Fellowship Programme.
