Flemish Ministry of Education and Training Master Mind 2024 Scholarship

Spread the love

Excellent students from all over the world are given scholarships by the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training for master’s programs in Flanders and Brussels. A Master Mind Scholarship entitles the recipient to a grant of €10,000 plus a waiver of tuition for one academic year (60 ECTS). Holders of the Master Mind Scholarship only have to pay an enrollment fee. The grant, which is given in installments, pays for a sizable portion of their living expenses as well as their insurance premiums and lodging costs. If you are interested, you first need to apply to one of the Flemish host institutions that participates in the Master Mind Scholarship Programme.


  • A maximum scholarship of €10,000 is given to the incoming student each academic year based on the information in the section Payment of the scholarship.

The only exception is for international applicants who are enrolled in a specific preparatory program in order to begin a master’s program in September 2024 and who do so at the time of application in the spring of 2024.

    • Preparatory programmes
    • Bridging programmes
