Hereby the Netherlands offers a valuable opportunity for participants to gain expertise in studying and managing (returned) cultural heritage.

The first scholarships will be awarded in the spring of 2024, with selected students commencing their master's programme in September 2024. The offered specialisations include programmes such as Applied Museum and Heritage Studies, Colonial and Global History or Cultural History and Heritage, and other related fields that closely align with the needs of the participating countries.
