CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS to the International Fund

University College Odisee manages an “International Fund” to promote mobility to and from their programs and departments at the various campuses. Grants are awarded to incoming/outgoing students and incoming/outgoing reseachers for study, placement or research. These grants wish to encourage the international character of education and research in Odisee.

The amount of the grants awarded is not fixed in advance: the Selection Committee will decide annually in function of the available funds, the amount of applications and the contents of the applications. Not all costs related to the mobility will be covered by the grant.

Applications for the International Fund will be examined in two phases.

  • In first instance the validity and completeness of the application will be judged: the applicant submits before the end date of the corresponding call, using the correct application form and providing all requested data. The minimum period of the exchange abroad amounts to 60 days.
  •  In the second phase, the content of the application and its quality will be examined by the Selection Committee: project program or research program is achievable, local educational / scientific supervision has been foreseen, the applicant’s motivation and reasoning are clear and relevant, the mentioned preparatory steps are clear, relevant and sufficient to complete the mobility project successfully

The Selection Committee will select valid applications on the basis of the qualitative criteria and will make a ranking list for awarding of the grants according to the scores on the quantitative criteria and availability of funds for each call.

A grant of the International fund can only be attributed once to a student or researcher and is not compatible with any other grant, which is attributed for the same mobility. This incompatibility is not applicable for grants or study loans provided by the (Flemish) Government or private sponsoring of a candidate.
