The Anne van den Ban Fund (previously the ‘Stichting Redelijk Studeren’), is named after
Dr Anne van den Ban, a former professor Rural Extension at Wageningen University. The fund was founded in 1992 by two Wageningen alumni. The Anne van den Ban Fund is affiliated to the Wageningen University Fund.
The fund exists to enable promising students from developing countries and Central and Eastern Europe to study at Wageningen University. The long term goal is the training of talented experts who will go on to play leading roles in improving the agricultural production, rural development and environment in their own countries.
In addition to the geographical criteria students applying for the fund must meet the following conditions:
– they must already be accepted for their chosen study at Wageningen
– they must have achieved good academic results in their own country
– they must intend to return to their own country at the completion of their degree
The fund also gives preference to candidates who already receive some form of financial assistance.
Applicants please note: the Anne van den Ban Fund is not a rich fund. The fund can only support a limited number of students each year! Check our contact page for the latest news.

Before your application for a fellowship can be considered, you first have to be admitted to a MSc at Wageningen University.
See for admission procedures: http://www.wageningenuniversity.nl/UK/informationfor/stud-outside
If you have been admitted or if you are admitted under the conditon that you complete your BSc soon you can apply for a fellowship of the Anne van den Ban Foundation (ABF).
The call for fellowships for all programmes starting September is open from 1 February till 15 April. The call for fellowships for all programmes starting in February is open from September 1 till October 15.
Please realize that the ABF is not a rich one. It therefore is highly recommended also to apply at other foundations. This only will benefit you because they normally offer higher monthly allowances than we can do.
The probability to get a fellowship from the ABF for the academis year 2011/2012 is almost reduced to zero due to the fact we can only offer a maximum of 5 full fellowships a year and due to the fact that we are overrun by applications caused by some rumours at twitter.
Please do not apply unless you have been admitted to a MSc programme at Wageningen University !!!!!!
