The Government of Flanders awards up to 45 scholarships to outstanding Master students. The programme aims to promote the internationalization of the Flemish Higher Education, as stated in the Action Plan for Student Mobility, Brains on the Move (September 2013).
The Flemish Government is the executive branch of the Flemish Community and the Flemish Region of Belgium. It consists of a Government cabinet, headed by the Minister-President and accountable to the Flemish Parliament, and the Public Administration (civil service) divided into 13 policy areas, each with an executive department and multiple agencies.
The eligible applicant must be registered as a full-time Student at a higher Education institution at the moment of application. Most institutions require proof of Dutch language proficiency for the programmes taught in Dutch and a preliminary language test for the Programme taught in another language.
The Flemish Host institution applies on behalf of the student.
