    Student administration for (almost) scholarship students

    For students with a scholarship of the Flemish Community the administration runs a bit different. What is important to know?

    Apply as a scholarship student

    During your application you can indicate what applies to you on the page 'social services'.

    ! The 'scholarship' part of this page is meant for Belgian citizens or for holders of a Belgian residence permit. Tick the box if you have applied for or received a scholarship of the Flemish Community. If you have not applied for a scholarship, you can leave this part of the page blank. 

    Students with a student visa are not eligible for a scholarship of the Flemish Community.

    All information on how to apply >>>

    Ticking these boxes only has an influence on your tuition fee. You should apply online for the scholarship >>>

    Important date: 1 May
    If you indicate during your registration at the VUB that you received a scholarship of the Flemish Community in the previous school or academic year and you declare that you have submitted or will submit an application for a scholarship of the Flemish Community for the next academic year, you pay the tuition fee rate for scholarship students.

    Not approved or no decision? Additional invoice.
