Formal Framework

 During its meeting of 23 May 2001, the Board of Directors decided that special measures would be taken to provide postgraduate scholarships to candidates from developing countries who wish to obtain a master’s degree at Ghent University.

In view of the changes in the Flemish Higher Education System the information in the call for applications has been adjusted at the Executive Committee meeting of 9 November 2006. Each year, a maximum of 10 scholarships can be awarded.

Scholarship type and duration

The master scholarships are awarded for the duration of the studies, aiming at the delivery of a Ghent University diploma after max. 2 years of study. The scholarship is in principle paid for the total duration of the studies. In case of a 2-year study programme, the 2nd year will be paid upon successful completion of the first year (minimum 60 credits)

Funding

The scholarship consists of an allowance of EUR 964 per month and the yearly tuition fee with a maximum of EUR 80. In case of increased tuition fee for the master”s programme, Ghent University will only reimburse the refundable part. Airline ticket and visa costs are carried by the student.

Eligibility criteria

Degree

Applicants for master”s programmes should already have obtained a bachelor degree when they submit the application.

Nationality

The applicants must come from and should be nationals of one of the developing countries on the country list of developing countries. Priority, however, will be given to the categories on the DAC List of Aid Recipients with the lowest levels of development and income. Priority will also be given to students applying for an ICP-programme whose country is not on the VLIR-country list but on the UGent list.

Language and proficiency

The application is to be made in English. The applicant should have a very good command of the English language. Click here to see the requirements.
Selection procedure

Eligibility check

Application files that do not comply with all eligibility criteria or submission requirements, will not be considered for selection.

Selection Committee

The Council for Development Cooperation (COS or Commissie Ontwikkelingssamenwerking) makes a selection of the applications based in part on the recommendations obtained from a working group of this Council and proceeds to formulate well-founded recommendations to the Executive Committee of Ghent University.

Selection criteria

The recommendations are based on:

– The qualifications of the applicant for the master grant (this also implies that the chances of overly qualified candidates might increase);

– Students who successfully follow the first year of a Master Grant programme at Ghent University may have a higher chance of selection;

– There is no strict age limit, altough applicants below 40 years are preferred;

– The significance of the master”s programme for the student”s country;

– Validation of the knowledge in the student”s country;

– The student”s nationality. In the event of equal rankings on the basis of the quality of the file, priority will be given to the categories on the DAC List of Aid Recipients with the lowest level of development and income. Priority will also be given to students applying for an ICP-programme whose country is not on the VLIR-UOS country list but on the UGent list;

– The motivation of the applicant.
