A primary source of funding for education exchanges between the United States and the Netherlands, in 2016 the NAF awarded:
- 15 Dutch and American students the prestigious NAF-Fulbright Fellowship for post-graduate study in the Netherlands or the U.S.
- 7 Dutch and American students interest-free loans to pursue advanced studies
- Four Dutch students the opportunity to spend a summer as interns on Capitol Hill and at George Mason University, funded by the annual NAF Ambassadors’ Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C.
As the result of a cooperative venture among the NAF, the Institute of International Education (IIE) in New York and the Fulbright Center in Amsterdam, the NAF grants NAF-Fulbright Fellowships.
The NAF provides three year interest-free loans to eligible students and professionals enrolling in Advanced Studies (Post Baccalaureate) in either the United States or the Netherlands, payable at the end of three years. Only U.S. or Dutch citizens may apply.
Supported by funds raised at the Netherland-America Foundation Gala Award Dinner in Washington, DC, the NAF offers summer internship programs with academic training at George Mason University and internships on Capitol Hill.
