Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme
The Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme was first launched in China in 2008 and now also runs in Indonesia, Korea, Mexico and Taipei.
The Orange Tulip Scholarship China Programme was launched in September 2008. It aims to create opportunities for talented Chinese students to study in Holland. In establishing the Orange Tulip Scholarship programme, Neso China cooperated closely with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, especially the economics department, and has received strong support not only from Dutch higher education institutions, but also from China-based Dutch companies.
The Orange Tulip Scholarship China programme is only open to qualified students from Mainland China. For the 2011-2012 academic year the overall funding available in the programme amounts to € 300,000 (about 7 million Yuan). Thirty excellent Chinese students can benefit from this programme and obtain a bachelor’s or master’s degree at recognised Dutch institutions, financed by the Orange Tulip Scholarship sponsors.
