Learn more about the Master Mind Scholarships.
The Flemish Ministry of Education and Training awards scholarships for master's programmes in Flanders and Brussels to outstanding students from around the world. A Master Mind Scholarship includes a grant of €8 000 + a tuition fee waiver per academic year (60 ECTS). Master Mind Scholarship holders only pay an administrative enrolment fee. The grant is paid in instalments and covers accommodation costs, insurances and a significant amount of their living expenses. If you are interested, you first need to apply to one of the Flemish host institutions that participates in the Master Mind Scholarship Programme. The call for the next academic year will be issued between December and January.
- The duration of mobility is one academic year for a master's programme of 60 ECTS and two academic years for a master's programme of 120 ECTS.
- The incoming student is awarded a maximum scholarship of €8 000 per academic year according to the details mentioned in the appendix Payment of the scholarship (see below).
- The host institution can ask the applicant for a tuition fee that equals the lowest rate of the yearly tuition fee for a student who receives a study grant from the Flemish government. The rate for the academic year 2020-2021 is €111.90. This rate may increase slightly from year to year.
