Programme Update
20 September 2019

Dear relation,

With this Programme Update we inform you as participant in the programme on all process information regarding the Orange Knowledge Programme. 

With kind regards,
Team Orange Knowledge Programme
 
Individual Scholarships 
French formats available for scholarship applicants
Good news for French speaking applicants for an Orange Knowledge scholarship. From now they can apply for a Short course or Master’s in French, on the following conditions: 
1) the applicant is based in a Francophone partner country;

2) the applicant is applying for a scholarship for the available French taught courses.
 
Application in Delta
It is now possible to complete the registration form in Delta in French (providing the two above conditions are met). Although the registration form is currently only available in English, applicants are allowed to answer the questions in French. We intend to provide the registration form in French in the future.
 
Formats* 
We provide French versions of the following documents:
- Employer’s statement (‘Formulaire de déclaration de l’employeur’)
- Government statement (‘Déclaration de l’autorité publique concernée’)
- OKP Obligations for scholarship holders (‘Obligations du Programme Orange Knowledge (OKP) pour les boursiers’)

Feel free to use the formats shared with you in this Programme Update. We will soon publish the French formats on the scholarship documents page for education institutions as well. 
  
Questions in French
Please note that the programme's official language is English and that we - being a Dutch organisation - communicate in these 2 languages. We emphasise that we will not answer applicant questions in French.

Please contact us at okp@nuffic.nl if you have any questions about the above. Feel free to spread the word among interested and eligible candidates from Francophone countries. Bonne chance!

* Note: in case of any inconsistencies or differences in interpretation between the French translation and the original English document, the English version prevails.
