Studeren in Nederland or StuNed, is a full scholarship programme, a longstanding component at the heart of the bilateral relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands.

Since 2000, the programme has been funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation through the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN) in Jakarta and implemented by Nuffic Neso Indonesia, the overseas representative of the Dutch Organisation for Internationalisation in Education (Nuffic).

Over the past 20 years, StuNed has supported and contributed to Indonesia’s human capital development in various strategic areas, including: agriculture, investment climate, water management and security and the rule of law. This has positioned StuNed as one of the most prominent scholarships among various scholarship programmes available for Indonesian citizens.

Since 2000, four modalities have been applied under StuNed, namely Master degrees, Short Courses, Tailor-made Trainings and Refreshing courses. The later was removed from the programme in 2012. Masters and Short Courses are awarded based on Individual Applications, while Tailor-made Trainings are awarded based on Group Applications.

Since it was first launched in 2000 until now, StuNed has gone through a number of changes in terms of its substantive focus, usually referred to as priority areas. In the previous phases StuNed has changed from having a focus on geographically poor areas and development-needs of specific sectors to a more competitive, merit-based scholarship.

Around 4,500 Indonesians have received support from StuNed since it was launched in 2000. These 4,500 students are the spearhead of the bilateral relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands and serve as ambassador/showcase of the excellent qualities of Dutch Higher Education.
