Scholarship / Financial aid: 120 scholarships available yearly (full costs covered)

Date: January - December 2012

Deadline: 1 March 2012

Open to: mid-career professionals from Middle East and North Africa

Announcement follows

The Middle East and North Africa Scholarship Programme (MENA Scholarship Programme) is initiated and fully funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The MENA Scholarship Programme was set up in 2007 as a result of the growing interest in both the Arab world and the Netherlands to strengthen mutual ties in the areas of education, culture and trade.

The programme enables mid-career professionals to do a short course in the Netherlands. Each year there are around 120 scholarships available, which are proportionally distributed among the participating countries. Ideally, half of the scholarships are allocated to female applicants.


The MENA Scholarship Programme aims to contribute to capacity building within a wide range of governmental, non-governmental and private organisations and institutions in seven selected countries:


Moreover, the growing MENA alumni network will make a positive contribution to the relations between the Netherlands and your country.

■Water management
■Business administration and management
■Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries

. While the scholarships is awarded to you, the need for training must be demonstrated in the context of the organisation you work for.

The scholarship

MENA scholarships can be used for a number of selected short courses offered by educational institutions in the Netherlands. The institutions provide professional training at post-secondary level in several fields of study. The list of selected short courses can be found in the MENA brochure. Please note that all dates mentioned in the brochure are mentioned as MM/dd/YYYY (e.g. 3/1/2012 is 1 March 2012).

A MENA scholarship is a contribution to the costs of the selected short course and is intended to supplement the salary that the scholarship holder must continue to receive during the study period.
