New fund named 'FIS' takes over role of King Baudouin Fund
The King Baudouin Fund is active since 1954 and was established after a visit by the then King Baudouin to the University of Antwerp. Every year, this fund awards scholarships to students who wish to continue their studies abroad, after obtaining a master's degree at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Antwerp.

The King Baudouin Fund has already enabled several high-profile alumni to successfully complete their international study programme. To continue raising young talent to a higher level, the Faculty of Business & Economics Fund for International Studies (FIS) has now been established at the University of Antwerp, a new named fund.  As from now on, the FIS will take over the role of the King Baudouin Fund.

Purpose of the FIS
The Faculty of Business & Economics Fund for International Studies annually awards scholarships to Master's students or young alumni, who have graduated within a maximum of 3 years, for international studies after obtaining a Master's degree at the Faculty of Business and Economics. In this way, they get the opportunity and the financial support to study abroad.

Through an international study, these students are formed into critical professionals with a global, multicultural mindset, which has a significant impact on their development. This also broadens the University of Antwerp's international reputation and visibility through the presence of students abroad.
