The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund supports sustainable water management in developing countries, among others by financing on-the-spot internships for students from developing countries who are studying in Belgium. The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund takes into consideration an integrated approach to water management that includes technical and/or sociological aspects.
The internship will take place in a developing country (the student’s country of origin or another country). It will be tied to a master’s thesis or an equivalent and under the responsibility of the Belgian academic institution where the student is studying. The internship, which should last 1 to 2 months, must take place between December 2023 and the end of August 2024. About ten grants shall be awarded.
Eligible are students from developing countries who are pursuing a master’s level degree (master’s, specialisation master’s or a second bachelor’s degree) and that work on a thesis that is linked to water management.
Actions must take place in the Southern Hemisphere (i.e. Ethiopia, Mali, Cambodia etc.).
The grant will cover the expenses inherent to the internship, up to a maximum of € 5,000.
The deadline for applications is 18 October 2023. Please visit their website for all application documents. Applications must be submitted online.
