Alumni activities - Orange Knowledge Programme

Funding for alumni activities is available for all countries of the Orange Knowledge Programme.

The modality Alumni Activities, part of the Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP), contributes to diplomatic relations and sustainable development by investing in local alumni. It encourages them to join or strengthen alumni networks, remain in contact with Dutch educational institutions and embassies, and offers the possibility to network with third parties, like the Dutch business community.

Only alumni associations can apply for funding. Activities organised with OKP funding should not be social events. In 2020, we will accept proposals until the budget is exhausted.
