The online college and the online degreeare two relatively modern inventions. They are particularly helpful and broadly-used in developing countries. The lack of enough good institutions across the world and the simple fact that the best universities command such a hefty price tag for admission and covering tuition fees, has turned education into the preserve of the rich and privileged.
We will not assault this idea in our offer here. Instead, we want to link you to a great offer if you are a resident of a developing country today. We are introducing the ARES Belgium scholarship initiative.
Overall150 scholarships are offered to students which hail from developing countries and are part of a French-speaking university. In addition, 70 scholarships more will be offered for training programmes.
Now, in terms of eligibility there are a few criteria that need to be observed:
- The only type of applicant that will be admitted to apply is one that hails from a developing country.
- To be more specific here, you must be a national of one of the following countries: Benin, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cuba, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Haïti, Madagascar, Morocco, Niger, Peru, Philippines, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Senegal or Vietnam
- We believe in equality before everything, but we do have a restriction. Candidates must not be older than 70 years of age.
- Candidates must also be holders of a degree that can be equated to a one handed out by a Belgian university
In order to apply, you will have to follow a long list of criteria:
- First, with regards to the deadlines, you will need to apply by 8 February 2018
- You must be aware that only applicants who have the appropriate form and speak the necessary language will be admitted
- You will also have to undergo certain types of trainings at once.
Be one of the many candidates from developing countries to go and study in Belgium where there are equal opportunities for everyone and where academic merit is the most important quality an individual has to possess. We strongly encourage you to apply well ahead of schedule to avoid snafus in the application process.
