|NFP Application Procedure|

The application and selection procedure
The application procedure consists of the following steps:
1. Applicants first apply for admission to the ANLP. Applications should always be directed to the Dutch provider of the course (in this case the ANLP secretariat).
2. The ANLP Selection Panel assesses the application and decides whether or not the applicant’s educational background and other experience meet the specific requirements for the course. The ANLP secretariat then informs all applicants of its decisions (by 23 October 2011). Candidates who have been accepted receive a letter to this effect.
Candidates are eligible for a fellowship only if they have been admitted to the ANLP and comply with all the criteria.
3. Candidates then apply for an NFP fellowship through the Netherlands embassy or consulate in their own country.
4. To do this, candidates must complete an NFP Short Course Application Form and submit it together with all the required documents to the embassy or consulate. These forms can be obtained from the embassy or consulate. They can also be downloaded (as pdf).
5. The fellowship application deadlines for ANLP is 1 December 2011.
Candidates should NOT send their fellowship application forms directly to Nuffic or to the ANLP secretariat, but should forward them to the Dutch embassy or consulate in their own country
6. Completed fellowship application forms must be submitted to the Netherlands embassy or consulate in the person’s own country. The embassy or consulate checks each application against the criteria listed above. They give special attention to the following:
7. The embassies and consulates forward all fellowship applications that meet all the criteria to Nuffic. Nuffic decides how many fellowships will be available for each course. The allocation of fellowships over the various possibilities is based on two figures for each course: the number of eligible applicants for 2012 and the number of fellowships that were awarded for 2011
Deadline for applications:
The application for NFP fellowships should reach the embassy or consulate well before the fellowship application deadline which is 1 December 2011. Selection of the candidates who will be awarded NFP fellowships for short courses takes place in the month following the deadline.
