Scientific Research Institutes

Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp (ITG)

The ITG started in 2003 with a doctoral training programme for former master’s degree participants. Three new scholarships are offered every year. The scholarships cover almost all expenses during a four-year period. This includes monthly living allowance for no more than four years, travel to Antwerp and some resources to support research in your home country and / or in Antwerp.

Each year at the beginning of October an ITG doctoral studies selection committee meets to evaluate the proposals and select up to three candidates that fulfil the academic requirements. The committee evaluates the academic achievements of the candidate (academic training transcripts and previous professional and scientific experience) and the proposed research project. The relevance of the proposed topic compared to the research agenda of the ITG scientists is also evaluated. The candidate should not have any links to an existing institutional collaboration project between ITG and a partner in the South, as that project should then provide financing for the scholarship. The committee also has to be convinced that the research can be completed within the four-year time period and that the candidate can obtain a PhD before the age of 45. Usually it is better not to wait too long after your master’s degree before starting a PhD; two to five years would be a suitable period. Once a candidate has been selected (usually in November) the PhD training (and scholarship) will formally start. Only up to three excellent candidates will be accepted each year.
