Scholarships Online (SOL)

You must submit your application for an NFP fellowship online through Scholarships Online (SOL).

Applying in SOL

Before you prepare your application you must have:

  • studied all the information available on the NFP pages about the NFP in general, the application procedure as well as the SOL manual;
  • checked the applicable fellowship application deadline of the master's degree programme, short course or PhD study you want to apply for;
  • checked the applicable academic application deadline for the programme you are applying for. You cannot use SOL to obtain academic admission. You must arrange this directly with the Dutch institution.

Please note that each sub-programme has its own application form in SOL. Use the quick links on the right-hand side of this page to go to the SOL area of the sub-programme you are interested in.
