Performing research abroad is an opportunity to find your bearings on the international job market, supplement your academic knowledge with practical experience, improve your language skills and to get to know the work ethic of the host country.

By creating additional financing options for PhDs relating to developmental problems, VLIR-UOS aims to maintain and increase the scientific expertise about development cooperation which is present in the Flemish universities as well as to help rejuvenate this group of experts. The provision of these financing options also ensure that developmental problems will be featured on the research agenda of Flemish universities. This is why VLIR-UOS proposes scholarships each year, aimed at graduates of Flemish universities.
