NFP fellowship information MA programmes


The new NFP fellowship application round for Master programmes has started on February 2nd, 2017. Also, the Research Master Infection & Immunity (EMC) has been registered for NFP and is open for NFP applications.


We will forward promising NFP candidates, who registered for the Research Master Infection & Immunity and have been admitted, to ATLAS for completing their NFP applications. The direct link to the NFP fellowship application form in ATLAS is:

We will only forward the direct link to candidates who meet all eligibility criteria for the NFP. We actively recruit female applicants and applicants from sub-Sahara Africa, as these groups get priority in the fellowship selection process. We ask candidates to prepare their NFP applications and the required documents with the greatest care, and avoid any of the situations that may lead to a disqualification (see reasons for rejection). EP-Nuffic has provided a manual for NFP candidates, assisting them with completing their NFP application in ATLAS. More general information on NFP can be found on the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) website.

The deadline before which potential candidates must submit their complete application in ATLAS is 26 March 2017. So in case of you apply for the NFP fellowship, we will give priority to your selection procedure!


NFP candidates nominated by us (i.e. by the EUR) will be assessed and ranked by the Dutch embassies in their home countries as part of the selection process; the NFP focus areas of the embassies vary per country (see the NFP country focus’ overview).

EUR will, amongst other criteria, give preference to candidates who:

  • Are female and/or from sub-Saharan countries
  • Are likely to be highly ranked by the Dutch embassy, based on the country’s focus areas.
