Description

You may qualify for a scholarship for an RNTC course. The most commonly used scholarship for our courses are the NFP and MSP (MENA) scholarships from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and executed by EP-Nuffic.

NFP stands for Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP), MSP stands for MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Scholarship Programme. NFP scholarships are available for 50 countries, MSP scholarships for 9 countries.

You can only apply for a scholarship for your chosen course during the 'application window' for that course. The next period to apply for an NFP or MSP scholarship is from February 2nd until March 29th 2017.

An NFP or MSP scholarship will cover the full cost of your travel and visa (if required), accommodation and meals, insurance, and the course fee. The NFP and the MSP scholarship programmes are funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and administered by EP-Nuffic, the Netherlands Organisation for International Cooperation in Higher Education.

Scholarship Application Method

How to apply for NFP/MSP?

You will need to apply online (applications by post are not possible). To apply for an NFP or MSP scholarship you need to take the following steps:

Start in time with your RNTC application:

Make clear in your application to RNTC that you are intending to apply for an NFP or MSP scholarship. The option is included in the RNTC application form (only available for ‘NFP’ and 'MSP' courses before the NFP/MSP deadline).

2.    Once you have submitted your application, RNTC will inform you by email whether you are eligible or not (usually within two weeks). Please note that the deadline for sending in your RNTC application is March 23rd 2017, 13:00hrs Central European Time.

3.    If you are eligible for the course, RNTC will send you a link by email to apply for an NFP or MSP scholarship in ATLAS; the online system for your NFP or MSP scholarship application.

4.      Then apply for an NFP or MSP scholarship:

The deadline for applying in ATLAS for the upcoming application window is March 29, 2017 13:00 hrs Central European Time. Also please note that your NFP or MSP application has to be completed and submitted in one go! Once you have submitted your application, you will not be able to make changes or additions.
