New Holland Scholarship Australia
The New Holland Scholarship Australia (NHS Australia) was initiated in 2016 by the Dutch consulate in Sydney to commemorate the first recorded European landing on Western Australian soil by Dutch explorer Dirk Hartog, 400 years prior.
NHS Australia aims to increase the academic cooperation between Australia and the Netherlands.
The exchange of knowledge has played an important role throughout the decades of cooperation between Australia and the Netherlands.
NHS Australia has provided a scholarship of € 2,500 for forty Dutch and Australian students. They will cross the globe to study or conduct research at (a wide range) of universities spread across Australia and the Netherlands to continue this exchange of knowledge.
The programme is co-financed by the Dutch government and Australian higher education institutions.
This programme is now closed for new applications.
