Call for alumni activities - Orange Knowledge programme

Deadline: until budget exhaustion - Grants for activities that allow alumni of the Orange Knowledge Programme to strengthen their network.

Grants will be awarded for activities that give alumni of the Orange Knowledge Programme (or its predecessors NICHE, NFP and MSP) the opportunity to strengthen links with other alumni, Dutch knowledge institutions, embassies and other parties, and to share knowledge and experience.

These activities should preferably be linked with activities at Dutch embassies, such as hosting or co-hosting meetings, providing support for incoming delegations, programme or project presentations, visits to businesses, round-table discussions about development cooperation themes, etc.

If necessary, the embassy in question will be asked for advice about your application. Alumni associations in the participating countries or Dutch knowledge institutions may apply for a grant for alumni activities. A co-funding requirement applies for a number of countries.


A grant for alumni activities can be provided for a maximum of 2 proposals (of up to € 5,000 each) per applicant. Check the policy framework for more information:
