The Anne van den Ban Fund is affiliated to the Wageningen University Fund.
The fund exists to enable promising students from developing countries 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 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.
