What is StuNed?

StuNed, Studeren in Nederland, is a scholarship programme that aims to contribute to the development of Indonesia through strengthening the human resources of Indonesian organisations. Each year some 150-200 full scholarships are offered for professionals to follow master programmes, short courses or tailor made training, all conducted in the English language. Graduates commit themselves to return to Indonesia immediately after graduation and to be actively involved in the development.

The StuNed programme is subject to the Dutch policy for development co-operation which aims to achieve the UN Millennium Development goals in 2015. For Indonesia the bilateral programmes focus on generating and strengthening institutional capacity in development relevant sectors and theme’s such as: basic and higher education, ,HIV/ AIDS prevention, environment, water management and sanitation, trade, community based development, good governance & human rights, gender, and culture.

In line with the Indonesian Policy, as laid down in the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP), strengthening the decentralisation process is another objective of the StuNed programme. Therefore attention is given to candidates working at local government level and those working outside Java. StuNed also aims at a balanced gender representation (minimum 50% women).
