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.

- 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.
