“We are happy to formally launch the 2019-20 Orange Tulip Scholarships for Indian students to study in Holland,” Dutch Ambassador Marten van den Berg said. The scholarship was piloted in 2017 under Nuffic Netherlands Education Support Office (NESO) India.
“OTS was piloted in 2017 under Nuffic Netherlands Education Support Office (NESO) India. This year, 19 Dutch universities are offering around 55 scholarships in bachelors and master courses totalling a value of approximately ₹3.65 crore,” he added.
