Scholarships from the Belgian government

Scholarships from the Belgian government*
Belgian development cooperation works according to three distinct systems: direct (bilateral), multilateral and indirect development cooperation. Direct development cooperation is implemented by the Belgian government through the Belgian Technical Cooperation (BTC), in close cooperation with the governments of 18 countries in the South. Multilateral development cooperation goes through international organisations and agencies like the UN. Indirect development cooperation goes through DGDC-funded organisations like VLIR.
There are mainly two sources of scholarships: direct funding (Belgian Bilateral Scholarships) through the Belgian embassies and BTC on the one hand, and indirect funding via those organizations like VLIR.
VLIR offers a number of scholarships every year, so that students from developing countries can access these programmes.
Please note that the VLIR scholarship programme is aimed at individuals from a particular context who meet specific requirements. VLIR provides scholarships to people from developing countries with a minimum of professional experience who occupy key or strategic positions at an institution in their native country. The opportunities for knowledge transfer and knowledge application and transfer after the scholar returns home, is an important scholarship selection criterion.
