Scholarship programmes for internships

    • Erasmus Traineeship (in Dutch): for internships within the Erasmus area, you can receive between €379 and €529 per month depending on location and availability. The internship has to last for min. 2 months and needs to be part of your study programme. You need to apply for this scholarship one academic year before the academic year when the internship takes place. At the time of application you do not need to have found an internship already (the internship place can be added ultimately 4 weeks before the start of the internship). Please make your application in Oasis (under Curriculum (next year) > Exchange > trainee – select institution: not yet decided in EU).
    • Next application deadline (for internships during the academic year 2019-20): End of February 2019 (for internships during the 1st semester) – Half of May 2019 (for internships during the 2nd semester). An Erasmus Traineeship must be arranged in direct contact with responsible for the programme in the department or research group. This means that students are responsible for the initial contact to the relevant promotors, researcher or research group and for planning their Erasmus Traineeship. Please note that :
      • Erasmus Traineeship students are not allowed to sign up for courses abroad
      • There must be a connection with your study programme either as credits for your internship or as part of a course (see form curriculumonderdeelrealisatie – currently only available in Dutch). https://www.ugent.be/ps/nl/voor-studenten/administratie/formulieren
      • Upload the approval of the lecturer (written approval can be a mail) in the exchange application in oasis (documents > others > approval lecturer for internship) and contact to select your exchange application.

    • You can also apply for a scholarship for internships outside of the Erasmus area. The internship has to last for min. 1 month (5 ECTS). You need to apply for this scholarship one academic year before the academic year when the internship takes place. At the time of application you do need to have found an internship already.
