Nyenrode fund

Stichting Nyenrode Fonds (Nyenrode fund), established by Nyenrode alumni, uses donations from alumni and other parties to set up scholarships for our students.

In 2011, Stichting Nyenrode Fonds (SNF) started an initiative to enable so-called revolving scholarships, a familiar concept at American universities. These scholarships are specifically set up for talented potential students who lack the resources to entirely fund their education at Nyenrode themselves.

Revolving scholarships

The scholarship comprises approximately € 10,000, and contributing alumni often mentor recipients. The 'revolving' part of the scholarship means that its recipient has the moral obligation to repay the money thus enabling another student to receive the scholarship – making the recipient a new donor. This way, new talent will get the opportunity to study at Nyenrode.

Application deadline and planning

  • 15 May 2018: application deadline (CV, motivation letter and solid financial plan)
