Every academic year KU Leuven selects exceptional students from developing countries as scholarship candidates to obtain their PhD from the largest university of Belgium.
The Global Minds Programme
a) aims to give students the opportunity to conduct PhD research in a ‘sandwich’ system, which means that 50% of the research takes place at KU Leuven and 50% at the home institution of the scholar, supported by a local co-promoter
b) the PhD degree is awarded by KU Leuven
c) scholarships are offered to excellent proposals that deal with a development-relevant research topic, preferably linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Before submitting a GM PhD application, candidates must have their own formal doctoral research topic proposal.
Research proposals must be original and innovative; moreover, they must be clear, goal-oriented and their completion must be feasible within 48 months.
All PhD research must be supported and supervised by a KU Leuven professor.

The candidate must be formally affiliated to a university in his home country as an employee.
