Scholarship Summary

Scholarship Details:

Priority areas for the OKP scholarships

  •  The Dutch Ministry who is financing the scholarships aims at sustainable capacity development of organisations working in or around one of the four focus areas: First on Sexual and reproductive health and rights, and Security and the rule of law. The others are food security and water. You should indicate in your application when you work in one of these focus areas.
  •  Each of the Dutch Embassies in the OKP countries works within the policy lines of the Dutch government. Within this framework, they have set priorities for their field of work. For detailed information, please visit the Embassy website to find out more. We would like to emphasize that applications that do not fit with the Country Focus have a small chance of being selected. 
  •  There is a further priority for people from Sub Saharan Africa and for women.

You only need to apply in Delta.

Delta is an online registration system of Nuffic where you apply for a scholarship. You can register in Delta about two months before the respective application deadline. 

  1. Look at the overview above for available OKP&MSP sponsored courses and read the course description.
  2. Before you start in Delta, you need to have all the required documents and information ready, as you will need to submit them online during one session. Learn more on how to apply in Delta (see guidelines).  Required documents are only accepted in pdf format (max 2 Mb).
  3. Your motivation in the registration form: Have this prepared so you can copy/paste it into the online application form. This motivation will weigh heavily in the selection procedure. Questions that are asked in your Nuffic application are:
    – What is the issue or problem you want to address in your country?
    – How will this course enable you to address this issue?
    – How will you address this issue with your position within your organisation?

For OKP: go to this DELTA website, include the required information, upload your documents and complete the registration.

For MSP: go to this DELTA website, include the required information, upload your documents and complete the registration.

NB: You cannot update or complete your information after you have submitted your application. If you want to update your information or documents, you have to register once more in Delta. You can leave the field ‘reference number’ empty.

Deadline: March 30, 2023
