Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme
The Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme was first launched in China in 2008 and now also runs in Indonesia, Korea and Mexico.
Nuffic Neso Brazil launches the second call of the Orange Tulip Scholarship programme for excellent Brazilian students to study in the Netherlands.
Brazil is surfing a wave of internationalisation and the national programme 'Science without Borders' (SwB) aims to enhance internationalisation of technology and innovation through the mobility of students and researchers. Dutch higher education is successfully participating in the scholarship programme through SwB Holland.
In this context, OTS Brazil was created to counter offer a scholarship programme that also provides opportunities for talented Brazilian students who are interested in Master studies or in other areas of study that are not funded by SwB.
Through the Orange Tulip Scholarship programme, Dutch higher education institutions offer incentive scholarships to attract highly qualified Brazilians to follow a study programme at Bachelor or Master level. The scholarship amount is awarded to eligible applicants, who are selected and accepted by the participating universities for the academic year 2014-2015.
The scholarships apply to various fields of study at the participating universities. The amount of the scholarship varies per institution. Information for Brazilian students about each participant university as well as the details on the OTS Brazil scholarships they offer can be found on the special OTS Brazil page of the Nuffic Neso Brazil website (in Portuguese).
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 2013-2014 academic year there are, in total, 16 sponsors including Dutch higher education institutions and companies and 22 Chinese students have been awarded a scholarship.
Chinese students can find more information on the Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme in China on the Neso China website.
The Orange Tulip Scholarship Indonesia Programme has run since 2012 and has received great support from Dutch higher education institutions and companies, as well as the Indonesian government.
The scholarship programme is targeted at qualified, excellent Indonesian students wishing to study in the Netherlands for their bachelor and master degrees. Two institutions providing foundation programmes also participated in 2013.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, scholarships valued at more than € 600,000 were made available by sixteen Dutch higher education institutions, two Indonesian Ministries and one Dutch company.
The general deadline for applications for the Orange Tulip Scholarship Indonesia programme is 1 April 2014, although some institutions may have different deadlines. Please check each institution page carefully for deadlines.

Nuffic Neso Korea launched the Orange Tulip Scholarship in January 2010. The Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme in South Korea was created to provide opportunities for talented Korean students to study in Holland. Dutch higher education institutions and companies have joined forces as sponsors of the programme, which runs on a yearly basis. The institutions that participate in the programme and the fields of study covered vary each year.
Korean students can find more information about the Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme in Korea on the Nuffic Neso Korea website (in Korean).
Nuffic Neso Mexico launched the Orange Tulip Scholarship Programme in September 2010. The 2014-2015 academic year will be the fourth year that Mexican students can apply for this scholarship. Over the years it has become a well-known name with Mexican students.
The programme now includes more than 25 Dutch institutions, Mexican organisations and companies offering scholarships for Mexican students. Each participating institution provides information on the scholarship, which is used for promotion during fairs, events, presentations and through the Orange Tulip Scholarship Mexico Facebook page.
On the Nuffic Neso Mexico website (in Spanish) each participating institution has its own page, providing detailed information about the institution, the benefits and requirements of the scholarship and the deadline (all of which can be adjusted to the wishes of the institution itself).
