The Belgian/Flemish government will award up to 45 scholarships to outstanding Master students for the academic year 2017-2018 (starting September 2017 and finishing September 2018).
The purpose of this scholarship is to offer outstanding students the opportunity of pursuing an Initial Master degree at a Belgian/Flemish university. The scholarship will amount to maximum 7.500 euro per academic year and will be awarded for the length of the master programme (one or two years). This scholarship will not cover all living expenses which can amount up to 12.000 to 13.000 euro a year.
As our universities do have a good collaboration, we would like to ask you to communicate this opportunity to your last year bachelor students or recent graduates who could be interested in a Master study at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The applicant should have a high standard of academic performance and/or potential. He/she has to meet all academic entrance criteria, including relevant language requirements, for entering the Master programme in question.
