Grants to enable foreign masters’ students to do an internship in sustainable water management in a developing country. Grants awarded by the Elisabeth & Amélie Fund.

The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund supports sustainable water management in developing countries, among others by financing on-the-spot internships for students from developing countries who are studying in Belgium.

The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund takes into consideration an integrated approach to water management that includes technical and/or sociological aspects.

The internship will take place in a developing country (the student’s country of origin or another country). It will be tied to a master’s thesis or an equivalent and under the responsibility of the Belgian academic institution where the student is studying.


  • Students from developing countries who are pursuing a master’s level degree (master’s, specialisation master’s or a second bachelor’s degree) and that work on a thesis that is linked to water management.


  • The grant will cover the expenses inherent to the internship, up to a maximum of € 5,000.
  • The internship, which should last 1 to 2 months, must take place between December 2022 and the end of August 2023. About ten grants shall be awarded.
