Scholarship from the Flemish government

Under certain conditions, students may be eligible for a scholarship issued by the Flemish government.

The main criterium is your nationality, or more specifically, the type of visa or residence permit you have to reside in Belgium.

Please note: if you are living in Belgium under a student or work visa, you will not be eligible.
