RNTC Scholarship 2020

The RNTC scholarship for the year 2020 is currently ongoing and interested and qualified applicants are invited to submit applications. It is possible to register multiple times a year during an 'application window' to see if you are eligible for an OKP. OKP has three application windows, mainly in February, May/June and October. 
There are always going to be more applications than there are scholarships, so up your chances, by making sure you meet all of the RNTC criteria, see individual course pages for more details, and the Nuffic OKP & MSP criteria, which you can find at the bottom of this page. If you meet all the RNTC and Nuffic criteria and you’d like to apply, then follow the steps on our 'How to apply' page.
