Scholarship selection process

To award the fee waivers and scholarships, all students will be ranked based on evaluation of their application by a SINReM scholarship selection committee. To set up the scholarship ranking this selection committee can take into account not only previous achievements, motivation (including entrepreneurial spirit) and references, but also scientific background of the applicants, as the SINReM programme aims to work on multidisciplinary projects with a diversity of students having different backgrounds. Successful candidates who been granted academic admittance will receive a letter of admission, signed by the Registrar of Ghent University, in the name of the SINReM consortium. All students will be notified of their academic admission by receiving a Letter of Admission.
