Stichting Nyenrode Fonds (SNF, or Nyenrode Fund) provides scholarships for talented students lacking the resources to (fully) fund their education at Nyenrode Business Universiteit. These scholarships are made possible by our alumni an are 'revolving' in character. This means that recipients have the moral obligation to repay the money, enabling new students to receive a scholarship, and making former recipients new donors.

SNF facilitates the selection process for eligible prospective students. (A representative of) the donor remains closely involved as a mentor to the student during their time with us. Therefore, to get to know them personally and assess their motivation and skills, scholarship candidates are interviewed by the donors as part of the selection process

Eight young talents received a scholarship in 2018

In 2018, eight students started their studies at Nyenrode via a revolving scholarship. It is a varied bunch, with two Full-time BSc in Management and four Full-time MSc in Management students, as well as one Full-time MBA student and one student in a transition year.

We treasure the moment when, on the annual Thank the Donor Day, the students receive their cheques from their donors and mentors. On Saturday 22 September 2018 we opened the Coach House doors for the seventh time to host this inspiring event.
