Ghent University Doctoral Scholarships for Candidates from Developing Countries

With support from its Special Research Fund (BOF), Ghent University grants PhD scholarships to promising PhD students from developing countries who wish to carry out half of their PhD research at Ghent University and half in a university in a developing country.

Course Level

  • PhD Degree

Host Institution(s)

  • Ghent University.

Subject(s)

  • PhD Programmes

Grants

24 months of PhD research will be executed at the partner university in the South, for which no funding is provided through this scholarship. This part of the research (24 months) must be funded (e.g. local PhD scholarship or salary) at the partner institution in the South.  The Ghent University promoter receives a bench fee of €15.440 to cover (part of) the operational costs, as well as part of the travelling costs of the student and both the Ghent University and the local promoter.

Eligibility

Before applying for a PhD scholarship at Ghent university students Always need to find a professor from Ghent University who is willing to act as the supervisor (‘promoter’) of their doctoral research and who agrees to support their application. The best way to do this is by browsing the list of faculties and research topics available on our research directory.  The proposals must be jointly submitted by a candidate, a promoter at Ghent University and a supervisor at the partner university.  No restrictions are imposed on the field of research; nevertheless preference will be given to topics that are relevant for development. There must be a guarantee that the candidate will be able to work fulltime on the PhD project for a period of 24 months at the partner university in a selected developing country (South). This implies that the following conditions needs to be fulfilled:

  • there must be a local PhD supervisor at the partner university or research center in the south
  • A written  statement is requested stating that the candidate is either a funded fulltime PhD student or a staff member at this partner university.
  • And will be sufficiently exempted from teaching or other assignments as to be able to fully concentrate on the PhD research in the South.
  • This statement should also mention that the candidate receives a local PhD scholarship or salary for a period of 24 months when working on the PhD at the partner university in the South.  This co-funding is only intended for students who want to obtain a (joint) PhD degree at Ghent University.
