Belgian Bilateral Scholarships 2011 - 2012

Overview

Within the framework of its cooperation programme with Vietnam, the government of Belgium wants to support the government of Vietnam in its efforts to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development. The Belgian Bilateral Scholarships (BBS) constitute an important component of this cooperation programme, which aims to contribute to the long-term growth and stability of Vietnam.

Belgian Bilateral Scholarships, funded through the Directorate General for Development Cooperation (DGD) under the Federal Public Service of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, enable young professionals from Vietnam to pursue postgraduate studies in Belgium and gain new expertise for the benefit of their country. The programme is managed and implemented by the Belgian Embassy in Hanoi and the Belgian Development Agency (BTC).

Quantity and type of scholarships within the framework of the Programme
For the academic year 2011-2012, 40 scholarships are made available for Vietnamese nationals who want to obtain Master or PhD degrees from universities in Belgium.

A full scholarship will cover a return ticket to Belgium, all tuition fees, basic health insurance and a monthly stipend and allowances.

For Mixed PhD award holders, the scholarship only covers the period spent in Belgium. In addition, support for fieldwork costs (data collection, experiments, materials for experiments etc.) is also available. Award holders have to prepare a justified cost estimate signed by both Vietnamese and Belgian promoters and submit it to BTC Hanoi for approval.
