Nyenrode Fund, or Stichting Nyenrode Fonds (SNF) in Dutch, provides scholarships for talented students who lack the resources to fully fund their education at Nyenrode Business Universiteit. These scholarships are made possible by our alumni who act as mentor to the recipients.
The fund facilitates the selection process of the young candidates eligible for these scholarships. Since (representatives of) the donors are closely involved with the recipients, a personal connection is vital.
These scholarships are 'revolving' in character. This means that the recipient has the moral obligation to repay the money, enabling a new student to receive a scholarship. As this scholarship is not an official loan, it is not registered by the Dutch government.
Are you the recipient of a revolving scholarship and are you keen to offer the same opportunity to a young student? Pay it forward and take advantage of the fiscal benefits.

There is only a small number of scholarships available each year. A scholarship is never more than 50% of the total tuition fee, but it can make a significant difference to the possibility of studying at Nyenrode. This year, the following scholarships are available to international students:

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.
