PhD Scholarships for Candidates from Developing Countries - Special Research Fund - Doctoral Scholarships for Candidates from Developing Countries.

With support from its “Special Research Fund” (BOF), Ghent University wishes to support university research groups or research centres in developing countries in their aim to grow into excellent research centres by upgrading local academic personnel.

Therefore 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.

These grants take the form of a so called “sandwich” scholarship: the candidate obtains a scholarship for maximum 24 months to work within a span of 48 months on an alternating basis on the PhD at Ghent University ('North') and at the university or research centre in a developing country ('South').

Only for the periods the scholarship holder works at Ghent University the scholarship holder will receive a monthly income.

The rest of the PhD research is done in the partner university, for which no funding is provided through this scholarship.

For this part of the PhD research students must prove that they will be financed at their home university (e.g. fulltime PhD scholarship or salary).

No restrictions are imposed on the field of research, nevertheless preference will be given to topics that are relevant for development.

Relevance for development measures the degree in which the action of development corresponds with the expectations of the beneficiaries, the needs of the country, global priorities and the policies of partners and donors.

The proposals must be submitted by a candidate, a promoter at Ghent University and a supervisor at the local institution.

Before applying students 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.

Duration

The candidate obtains a scholarship for maximum 24 months which must be divided into several periods within a span of 4 years.

  • Students are obliged to divide the scholarship into minimum 2 different research stays in Ghent (North) and need to return at least once to their home university (South) in between (=‘sandwich- schedule’)
  • Due to all practical arrangements (visa, housing, contract, …) students are advised to stay for long periods in Ghent (e.g. 1 year).
  • This scholarship call does not intend to support students who plan only 1 research stay in Ghent or intent to finalize their Phd in Ghent.

    Who can apply?

    To be admissible for this call, all of the following requirements must be met:

  • Candidates need to come from – and have the nationality of – a developing country;
  • There must be a guarantee that the candidate will be able to work on the PhD project at the partner university in a selected developing country (South). This implies that there must be a local PhD supervisor at the partner university or research center.
  • A written statement is requested from the university authorities stating that the candidate is either a fulltime PhD student or a staff member of this 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 when working on the PhD at the partner university in the South.
  • This cofunding is intended for students who either want to obtain a PhD degree at Ghent University or who want to take a joint PhD at both Ghent University and their home university. Students who want to obtain a PhD degree at their home university only, are not eligible for this cofunding initiative.
  • CSC scholarship holders are not eligible to apply for a Doctoral grants for researchers from developing countries. CSC students are referred to the call Cofunding for Chinese candidates PhD candidates holding a CSC scholarship (deadline October).

    How does it work

    The candidate applies to Ghent University jointly with a promoter of Ghent University and a supervisor at the local institution.

    The promoter at Ghent University has to fill in a separate document ('promoter's advice') with advice on the candidate, stating the promoter's opinion on the potential of the candidate as a future researcher.

    The Research Council makes a selection of the applications based in part on the recommendations obtained from members of the Council for Development Cooperation. The recommendation is based on:

  • the qualifications of the applicant;
  • the doctoral project;
  • the relevance of the research topic for development;
  • the scientific/scholarly potential of the promoter’s research group(s);
  • the partnership between Ghent University and the local institute;
  • the scientific/scholarly potential of the local institute.

    How much funding is involved

    The value of the scholarship at Ghent University depends on, a.o., the researcher’s family situation and is approximately € 1.958 per month (24 months).

    The Ghent University promoter also receives a bench fee of €15.440 to cover (part of) the operational costs, as well as the travelling costs of the student and both the Ghent University and the local promoter.
