PhD scholarships for students from the Global South

Students from developing countries with an excellent PhD-project in Translation Studies can apply for a scholarship at KU Leuven. KU Leuven promoters can apply for a 4 year PhD project for a candidate from a developing country who wishes to obtain a doctorate at KU Leuven (“developing country” refers to a country on the OECD DAC-list<> from the categories “Least Developed Countries”, “Low Income Countries” of “Low Middle Income Countries”).

If you are such a student or if you know anyone who qualifies, please contact Elke Brems (, the head of the Research Unit of Translation Studies. Please attach your project and include the name of a co-supervisor in your home university. Then we can see whether one of our KU Leuven scholars is willing to supervise you and submit the project. Only excellent candidates should contact us, the scholarships are very competitive. And you must be willing to move to Belgium…
