The NN Future Matters scholarship programme was launched in 2015. It offers first generation students with a clear financial need the chance to pursue a Master’s degree. These scholarships are available to students - from 10 selected NN countries - who wish to complete a Master’s programme in the field of Finance, Risk or Economics in the Netherlands. The NN Future Matters scholarship programme, is a collaboration between NN and EP-Nuffic, a Dutch organization working on the internationalisation of (higher) education.
During their Master’s, the students are matched with a mentor from NN, who helps, supports and guides them through the year. In addition to being matched with an NN mentor, the students are invited to follow various workshops organised by NN. NN Future Matters has recently selected students for the NN Future Matters scholarship academic year 2016-2017. To illustrate the NN Future Matters scholarship programme and students, we created a video portrait of scholarship student Maria, who is currently finishing her Master’s in Economics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
