Academic Excellence Scholarship (AES) – MA programmes


We will award Academic Excellence Scholarships to students who have achieved outstanding grades in their most recent university degree and whose extra-curricular achievements show evidence of leadership in today’s global society. Other factors include one letter of recommendation from their university and (in certain cases) standardised test scores. The school's merit-based financial assistance can provide up to a 50% reduction in tuition. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees. The application deadline for such Academic Excellence Scholarship is 15 April.



  • Prospective students must possess outstanding academic records and personal integrity, as demonstrated by grades, extra-curricular activities that show social engagement or leadership, standardised test scores (such as TOEFL, IELTS, C2 Proficiency, C1 Advanced) and one letter of recommendation (if not already supplied with the Master’s application). The recommendation letter should ideally be from a professor who knows the prospective student well and can comment on his/her academic abilities and suitability for studying one of our Master’s programmes (including his/her academic writing and analytical skills). (click here for the Application form).
  • Prospective students must have been accepted into a Brussels School of Governance Master’s Programme as a full-time student.
  • There is a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) required to obtain a scholarship. The school will also take motivation and extra-curricular activities into consideration. Evidently, better scores and grades, combined with strong motivation and participation in extra-curricular activities will improve one’s chances of acquiring a scholarship.
  • Citizenship & residency: there are no limitations with regards to citizenship & residency. All applicants will be treated fairly and equally.
