VLIR-UOS scholarships

Thanks to the support from VLIR-UOS, the Flemish Interuniversity Council, students from 31 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin-America can apply for a full scholarship to follow a Master's programme at a Flemish university or university college in Belgium. We can thus provide 12 full scholarships that cover all expenses related to the Master of Epidemiology.

Selection timeline

The Academic Selection Committee will pre-select 24 candidates who fit all scholarship and selection criteria and who demonstrate the highest academic preparedness/potential necessary to succeed in the Master’s programme.

Applicants will be informed of the result of the deliberation via email. In total 12 applicants will be nominated for the scholarship (A-list) and 12 will be nominated for the waiting list (B-list).

This will then be submitted to VLIR-UOS by April for further screening and approval. Applicants who are awarded the scholarship funding or who are selected for the waiting list will be contacted by VLIR-UOS by the end of May.
