The BAEF will award up to eight fellowships, each carrying a stipend of $17,000 that includes lodging and living expenses in Belgium for one year, as well as round-trip travel expenses.

In addition to the stipend, the Foundation will provide health insurance. No other allowances will be granted.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and either have a Masters degree or equivalent degree, or be working towards a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. Candidates under the age of 30 with a reading and speaking knowledge of Dutch, French or German are preferred.
