ITMMA and the University of Antwerp do not grant scholarships.
Candidates who need financial assistance should explore all sources of financial aid that may be available in their home country.
A very limited number of partial scholarships of the Foreign Affairs administration of the Government of Flanders may be available for students coming from countries the Foreign Affairs administration has a bilateral agreement with. See below.
Partial scholarships from the Foreign Affairs administration of the Flemish Government for the M.Sc. in Transport and Maritime Management (MTMM) 2009-2010.
In principle, ITMMA will obtain a limited number of partial scholarships for the above-mentioned postgraduate programme (MTMM) for the academic year 2009-2010 from the Foreign Affairs administration (Ministry of Flanders). These scholarships may be granted to students coming from countries the Flemish Government has a bilateral or cultural agreement with, such as (not exhaustive) : Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, Chile, Ecuador, Brazil, Mexico, Dutch Antilles, Surinam, China, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Swaziland, Malawi, ... .
A partial scholarship from the Foreign Affairs administration covers a monthly allowance of €620 for the duration of the programme (i.e. eight months x €620). Next to this, the Foreign Affairs administration will contribute €6,040 towards the total programme cost which amounts to €12,000. A part of the remaining programme cost (i.e. €2,960) will be borne by our Institute. The remaining €3,000 has to be paid by the student (or his employer) before the 31st of September 2009. Also note that the round-trip flight is not covered by this scholarship.
The normal entry requirement for the MTMM programme is a university or college degree (of a 4-year minimum full-time programme) in a relevant subject. Ideally, candidates should have a (relevant) professional experience of about 3 years. Participants should also have a thorough knowledge of the English language. Selection criteria include geographical spreading and positive discrimination in favour of women as well.
Applications should be submitted before the 31st of May 2009, using the appropriate application form (i.e. the ITMMA application form which can be downloaded from this website (section 'Downloads')), to: Frank Van Laeken, Director, ITMMA, University of Antwerp, ITMMA-House, Keizerstraat 64, B-2000 Antwerp, Belgium.
Please mention under the section 'Financial details' on the application form that you are applying for a partial scholarship of the Flemish Government.
Please note that due to the highly interactive character of the programme only 30 participants can attend. Therefore, top-priority will be given to those students who are self-financed or sponsored by their organisations.
Also bear in mind that there's great demand for partial scholarships. The chance of being granted a partial scholarship is therefore rather little.
Candidates should bear in mind that accommodation and living expenses can vary considerably depending on personal lifestyles. The average monthly budget for one student amounts to some 620 Euro (including accommodation, insurance and health care).
