Do you want to study a master's degree with a scholarship in Belgium?
The Network of Flemish Universities in Belgium (VLIR-UOS) has just launched its call for grants for 15 one- and two-year master programmes for the academic year 2021-2022.
VLIR-UOS offers scholarships to follow one of the 15 selected international master's programmes (ICP). All programmes are taught in English and are organised in Flemish universities that are among the best in Europe.
The 15 Master's programmes have been selected for their relevance to development and will be taught in English. There will be 12 scholarships per Master's degree and applications from Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador will be accepted. The programmes are detailed below:
• Master of Development Evaluation and Management (University of Antwerp)
• Master of Globalization and Development (University of Antwerp)
• Master of Governance and Development (University of Antwerp)
• Master of Human Settlements (KU Leuven)
• Master of Cultures and Development Studies (KU Leuven)
• Master of Science in Food Technology (KU Leuven, Ghent University)
• Master of Science in Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management (Oceans and Lakes) (VUB, University of Antwerp, Ghent University)
• Master of Epidemiology (University of Antwerp)
• Master of Agro-and Environmental Nematology (Ghent University)

It is important to emphasize that the application (academic and for the scholarship) is direct with the universities and not with VLIR. The deadline is between 16 January and 1 March 2021 (depending on the programme).

We hope that you will be part of a growing network of VLIR-UOS "change agents" and that you will be able to get in touch with other students, alumni, experts involved in projects, etc.
