StuNed or Studeren in Nederland is a scholarship programme funded by the Government of the Netherlands, and an integral part of the bilateral cooperation between the Government of the Netherlands and Indonesia.

The main objectives of StuNed are to strengthen the capacities of human resources in Indonesian organisations in support of the bilateral relations between the Netherlands and Indonesia. The programme is implemented by Nuffic Neso Indonesia on behalf of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Indonesia.

Tailor-Made Training (TMT) is the part of the StuNed scholarship programme which aims to increase the capacity of institutions working on public purposes in Indonesia by providing training for its staff and related stakeholders. The training is to be provided by experts from Dutch universities, other knowledge institutions or training consultants from the Netherlands, in collaboration with Indonesian expert(s) if required.
