ICP PhD Scholarships 2011 for Developing Country Students in Belgium

As an ICP PhD student, you can institutionally strengthen your university or research institution in your home country by upgrading your academic capacities. Hence every year we provide 10 scholarships to people who wish to carry out research on a development topic, in a so-called sandwich programme.

The research and doctoral programme are geographically spread over two locations, namely the academic home institution and a Flemish university. In this way both local and Flemish expertise are combined to offer you and both research groups a win-win effect. The selection committee assesses and ranks all proposals according to quality and relevance for the South.

Target group
The call is open for people who graduated not earlier than 2006, or will graduate in 2011, from a Flemish, VLIR-UOS funded Master programme (ICP). As an applicant, you must meet other criteria, which we specify in the call.

Scholarship Application Deadline: Feb 2011
