A limited number of approximately 20 scholarships a year is awarded to female and male professionals who are:

  • highly motivated;
  • living and working in Algeria;
  • 20 to 45 years old;
  • proficient in English;
  • working in one of the priority areas fitting the MSP approach for Algeria;
  • using and transferring their knowledge and experience in their employing organisation after the training;
  • agreeing to the MSP obligations and conditions (133.9 kB).

English proficiency

You need English language skills because most courses are offered in English.

Priority areas

You have to be working within one of the following priority themes;

  • safety and security
  • youth entrepreneurship
  • journalism
  • human rights
  • local governance
  • (renewable) energy
  • (maritime) infrastructure
  • water management
  • environment, waste management
  • agriculture/dairy and food processing
  • small and medium enterprise development

Employer statement

You need an employer statement (105.6 kB) that is signed by you and your employer. It shows us that your employer supports your application. And that you can share the knowledge and experience you gained in the Netherlands once you return to Algeria. This is required because the MSP is focused at strengthening organisations by strengthening people.

Government statement

If you are a civil servant in Algeria you need a signed government statement (25.7 kB). This certifies the support of the Algerian government for your MSP application.

To arrange a government statement, please contact your Ministry. Please note that this can take 4 to 8 weeks.

Other requirements

The education institution will inform you on the requirements needed for your application. Most of the courses are designed for professionals with at least a BSC-level (or equivalent) and a minimum of relevant working experience. Applications from students will not be taken into consideration.

In order to apply for one of the courses you must motivate:

  • that you work within the priority themes for Algeria as mentioned above;
  • how the courses will strengthen both you and the organisation you work for;
  • how you will use your newly gained knowledge and experience in your organisation after your study.

We especially encourage women to apply for a scholarship. 50% of all scholarships per country are reserved for women.
