Step 1/13 Introduction

Country focus - priority areas

It is essential that your Motivation and your Employer Statement are clearly aligned to both the Course Content and the Country Focus areas. Applications that do not align are not eligible for scholarships.

In the country priorities recently published by Nuffic there is an increased focus on Security & Rule of Law, as well as Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights. Even if this does not form part of the core country focus / priorities as set out in this overview, including this in your application and motivation in a way that is relevant would improve your application.
