Elisabeth and Amélie Scholarships Fund for Masters Students 2022-23

Applications are welcome for the Elisabeth and Amélie Scholarships Fund to enable foreign master’s students to do an internship in sustainable water management in a developing country.

The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund promotes sustainable water management in developing countries by, among other things, funding on-the-spot internships for developing-country students studying in Belgium.

The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund considers an integrated approach to water management that incorporates technical and/or sociological aspects.

The internship will take place in a developing country (the student’s home country or another). It will be linked to a master’s thesis or equivalent and will be overseen by the Belgian academic institution where the student is enrolled.

Duration: 1-2 months


The Elisabeth and Amélie Scholarships Fund for Masters Students will cover the expenses inherent to the internship, up to a maximum of € 5,000.


Students from developing countries who are pursuing a master’s level degree (master’s, specialization master’s, or a second bachelor’s degree) and that work on a thesis that is linked to water management.


The key selection criteria for Elisabeth and Amélie Scholarships Fund are:

  • Objective. The internship is linked to access to water or its management in developing countries and must be clearly part of the subject of the candidate’s end-of-year project.
  • Pertinence. The work is undertaken by the candidate at the local level and the results that emanate from this deal with important local issues.
  • Capabilities. The budget requested must match the candidate’s needs. He/She must have sufficient resources to complete the internship under the required conditions.
  • Originality. The approach chosen by the candidate for his internship or the framework within which he is going to work has an innovative side. They are, in a certain way, different from the usual approaches or frameworks.
  • Impact. What will be realized during the internship brings real added value to the scientific approach that supports the end-of-year thesis.
