To apply for a scholarship for academic year 2023-2024, you must do so before 1 June 2024 at the latest (before the start of the academic year). You may indicate on your application that the Afdeling Studietoelage (the deparment of study grants) may also initiate your application for subsequent academic years.
Please not that this procedure is only available in Dutch. If you need any help translating, please contact Financial Support, and we'll guide you through.
What you need
You need a Belgian e-ID with its pincode. If you no longer have the pincode, you can request a new one on ibz.be. This will take a while, but applying with an e-ID also saves you time.
The computer you use needs to have the software to use an e-ID. You can download this on eid.belgium.be for free. Select your language and click 'free download'. The website will guide you through the process. It's important to only connect the card reader once the setup wizard tells you to.
Important: you can borrow a card reader to submit your application. Contact Financial Support to request one, or to get help with your online application.
- You can also log in with a 'federal token', which you must possess, along with a username and password.
- You can also opt to use the "It’s me" app, which allows you to confirm your identity in a safe and easy manner.

Advance on the scholarship
Many students don't receive the scholarship money until later in the academic year, while most expenses are made in the beginning. To avoid too much financial stress, you can request an advance on your scholarship. This will help you pay for a number of important study costs such as your tuition fee or course materials.
