Netherlands Fellowship Programmes


The Center of Information Technology (CIT) of the University of Groningen provides short courses for the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes of Nuffic.

The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) are demand-oriented fellowship programmes designed to foster institutional development. The NFP is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the budget for development cooperation. The overall aim of the NFP is to help alleviate qualitative and quantitative shortages of skilled manpower and to do so within the framework of sustainable capacity-building directed towards reducing poverty in developing countries.

More specifically, the NFP is focused on meeting the need for further training and capacity-building in developing countries. To maximize the impact of the fellowships on capacity-building, NFP-funded training must be linked to the institutional development of organizations. A wide range of organizations are eligible —governmental, private and non-governmental. They can include educational institutions, planning agencies, ministries, community-based organizations, and private enterprises.


The procedure for applying for a NFP course is described in detail on the Nuffic website.

As a first step applicants must apply to the organization that provides the course -in this case the Computer Center of the University of Groningen.The provider of the course will assess the application (whether the applicants background meets the specific academic requirements) and inform the applicant of its decision. Acceptance of the application is provisional. See below for the application form.
