Applicants applying for both academic admission and a VLIR-UOS scholarship need to consider both the admission requirements and the scholarship criteria.
Applicants applying for academic admission but not for a scholarship simply need to fulfill only the admission requirements of the host university running the programme.

The host university is in charge of the academic admission of applications. Study results will be taken into consideration during the selection, but the most important academic selection criteria are relevant professional experience and prospects for applying the acquired insights after return to the developing country. The academic admission requirements are specific to every programme. Please peruse the requirements from the relevant programme.

A joint selection committee of VLIR-UOS and the host university is responsible for selecting scholarships. The host university – not the applicant – forwards the scholarship applications to the VLIR-UOS secretariat if the academic admission requirements are met. The VLIR-UOS scholarship criteria relate to the qualifications required of all scholarship applicants and selection criteria evaluated by the selection committee. Download the VLIR-UOS scholarship criteria at the bottom of this page.
All applicants receive an acknowledgement of receipt of their applications. Applicants whose proposals are deemed academically admissible and who are awarded a scholarship for the academic year 2011-2012 will be contacted by VLIR-UOS and the host university by e-mail in May and June 2011. Applicants whose proposals are deemed academically admissible will be notified by the host university.

This is how you apply for the academic year 2011-2012

You can apply for a VLIR-UOS scholarship from the 1st of October 2010.

You must fill in the pre-screening form at the bottom of the page of the programme you want to follow. You may only choose one programme. If you apply to more than one programme your details will be entered more than once in our central database and all your applications will be inadmissible.

So you must follow the correct and complete procedure below.

1.       Apply on the VLIR-UOS website via the pre-screening form: fill in name, birth date, country, etc…;

2.       Receive a VLIR-UOS application/file number by return e-mail from VLIR-UOS;

3.       Apply on the website from the host university through the link mentioned in the return e-mail from VLIR-UOS;

4.       Write the received VLIR-UOS application/file number on the application file from the host university;

5.       Send a printout of your application file along with all required documents (diploma transcripts, motivation, etc…) to the International Office of the host university, not to VLIR-UOS.

Applications that are incomplete, illegible or that reach the host university’s International Office after the deadline will be automatically rejected.

The deadline to apply for a scholarship from VLIR-UOS for a master programme is the 1st of February 2011.

  53. Samson Tizazu Gebre says:

    I do have a dream which was grown up within me starting from my high school age in which I can play roles significant to my country (at least) and even to the world concerning Biodiversity protection and control of environmental problems such as pollution and spread of diseases. For this purpose I selected Biology as my major field of study in the beginning of my higher institute (college) study. In order to get my dream come true and widen my action to the levels of country, continent and world wide I have to grow first my selves educational Level to masters, PhD and above positions. Despite these I was happen to work (teach) in remote area for longer time where no one was fortunate to get his/her MSc education. Now your scholarship is coming to become my dream hope window in which financial aids are provided to me. I hope your master’s scholarship studies will equip me with the knowledge and skills of dealing with biodiversity and environmental problems. In my return to my country I will create conditions in which the society will get itself directly responsible for him selves’ environmental problems and biodiversity protection. As I am from tropical country (Ethiopia) which is rich in biodiversity; I would like to take responsibility of minimizing man`s unwise activity against biodiversity. In my country there are greater than nine national parks which are homes for numerous living species. The growing human population in my country is exerting its negative effect on wild life in many ways and these will also be my point of attention in my return to my country. After my study I will search, create cooperation, and regular connection with both governmental and non-governmental bodies that has similar interest, dream and willingness with me. Through these bodies support I will grow my capacity towards my dream achievement. I strongly believe in that there will come time when your organization that grown up me with this scholarship could get blessed by me and my colleagues in the achievement of my wide dream. With no hesitation my dream will come true.

  54. I applied for the International Training Programme in Food Safety, Quality Assurance Systems and Risk Analysis and received acknowledgement of receipt of my application and it ended there. I need further updates regarding my application.

    Thank you
