The Vrije Universiteit Brussel Scholarships

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel annually awards yearly a number of scholarships for advanced studies at Master or Advanced Master level. The selected scholarship programmes are characterized by the integration of education and research and a Master's thesis. They cover at least one year of study and depending on the field of study some programmes may take two years.

Annually one or more specific programmes are considered for Scholarships of Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The Bureau for Development Cooperation selects these programmes every year following an internal "Call for Interest" to all programme directors of a Master or Advanced Master programme. This selection is submitted for endorsement to the Research Council.

Expenses covered by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Scholars participating in a Master Programme will receive a monthly allowance of 1.000 euro*. This allowance is intended to cover room and board, individual transport and scholar's personal expenses. A monthly allowance of 60 euro* will be paid for the spouse and per child whether or not they accompany the scholar to Belgium (notes: (1) payment only upon receipt of a notarised copy of marriage and/or birth certificate(s); (2) possible travel expenses incurred by the scholar's family will not be covered by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel). Per academic year the scholar will be paid a lump sum fee of 275 euro for teaching materials (including the printing of the dissertation or reports). The scholar will be paid once a lump sum fee of 275 euro covering shipping costs of teaching material received during the programme (paid at the end of the programme). Upon arrival, the scholar will receive a one-time installation fee of 500 euro. International travel: the scholarship includes one one-way economy class airline ticket to travel to Belgium at the beginning of the programme and one one-way ticket to the scholar's home country at the end of the programme. A two-year programme also includes a round-trip ticket for summer travel to the scholar's home country. The reservations of the tickets are made by Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Annual tuition fee will be reimbursed after payment by the scholar.
Insurance: the Vrije Universiteit Brussel will provide medical, third-party liability, accident and repatriation insurance for the scholar. Insurances are paid directly by Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The scholar will receive a one-time preparation fee of 150 euro to cover visa costs.

*The amounts indicated in this publication may be adjusted in line with the Belgian indexation figures.

Duration of the scholarship

Depending on the programme, scholarships have a maximum duration of 12 months for one-year programmes or 24 months for two-year programmes. Scholarships start earliest on 16 September of the reference year (X) and end latest 20 September (X+1) for one-year programmes and 20 September (X+2) for two year programmes. Scholars who fail their exams will not be entitled to extend the duration of their scholarship. If scholars participating in a two-year programme obtain less then 60 ECTS (credits) at the end of the first year, they will have their scholarship aborted, unless university authorities decide otherwise.
