VLIR-UOS Sustainable Development and Global Justice (SUSTJUSTICE) Postgraduate Scholarships 2020/2021
Application Deadline: 15 October 2019
The Law and Development Research Group of Antwerp University will be running a training programme on “Sustainable Development and Global Justice” (SUSTJUSTICE) from 10 February to 30 April 2020.
SUSTJUSTICE offers a comprehensive teaching programme based on the
research lines of the Law and Development Research Group. The training
brings together a diverse group of leading experts from the North and
South to introduce salient features of their disciplines, and to engage
students in understanding and reflecting on key challenges for
sustainable development and global justice. The postgraduate programme
runs in conjunction with the Faculty’s Master of Laws (LL.M).
VLIR-UOS supports the programme with 12 scholarships for participants from the global South (please consult the eligible country list).

training candidate should have relevant professional experience and a
support letter confirming (re)integration in a professional context
where the acquired knowledge and skills will be immediately applicable.
- Fungibility with other VLIR-UOS funding: Candidates
who are working at a university where we already fund IUC, TEAM or SI
projects, can receive an ITP-ICP scholarship if they clearly motivate
the reason for their application and if they clarify why the
participation at the ICP or ITP programme cannot be funded as part of
the IUC, TEAM or SI programme or project funds that already exist.
- Other VLIR-UOS scholarship applications and previously awarded scholarships: A
potential candidate can only submit one scholarship application with us
per year – irrespective of the scholarship type – and can, therefore,
only be selected for one VLIR-UOS scholarship every year. Candidates who
already received one of our scholarships to participate in another ITP,
will not be eligible. Candidates who already received one of our
scholarship to participate in an ICP (or vice versa) can only be
selected if the previously attended course is thematically linked to the
