The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) is offering five fully-funded scholarships for the upcoming training programme on disarmament and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, co-organised by the Asser Institute and the Organisation on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). 

The threat posed by nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons has reached levels of urgency not seen since the Cold War. The global non-proliferation norms regarding the use and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction are under pressure. Consequently, there is a growing demand for professionals with the necessary legal, technical, and policy expertise to tackle the challenges of today’s non-proliferation and disarmament agenda.  

The fifteenth edition of the training programme on weapons of mass destruction, co-organised by the Asser Institute and the OPCW, will provide participants with a greater understanding of disarmament and non-proliferation efforts and the international legal challenges faced by practitioners in the field. 

Intensive training programme 
During this intensive training programme, you will receive a comprehensive overview of the international non-proliferation and disarmament framework. You will learn from renowned experts and practitioners in the field and engage in active discussions about key topics and current debates. The programme also provides you with the opportunity to build your professional network with experts in the field and includes study visits to the TU-Delft Nuclear Research Reactor and the OPCW. 

The MFA’s scholarships include tuition fees, international travel, accommodation, per diem allowance and medical insurance.  

The deadline for applications is 23 June 2024. To find out more about eligibility requirements and to apply, read more.
