Research funding


Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


Certain Belgian and international funds support mobility to specific countries.
Well-known scholarships and programmes include:

  • Von Humboldt Foundation: For study stays at a German university, college or research institution, from postdoctoral level upwards
  • BAEF scholarships: For study stays in the United States, for doctoral students and postdocs
  • Fulbright scholarships: For academic studies in the United States, for students, doctoral students and postdocs

This list is obviously not complete: there are numerous other scholarship opportunities. The Research Coordination office therefore organises an event called 'Knowledge on the move' every year in collaboration with the Internationalisation and Development Cooperation office. This briefing focuses on a number of well-known or lesser-known mobility possibilities on each occasion.

Are you interested in studying abroad for a while? Then contact the Research Coordination office to consider your specific funding options. The office will be happy to help you look for mobility funding for your specific destination of choice or for your research field.
