[Master Degree] KU Leuven Wilfried Martens Scholarship in Belgium, 2019-20 (Fully Funded)

In order to conserve, spread and deepen Wilfried Martens’ European political heritage and ideas, Mrs Miet Smet-Martens, the European People’s Party and his Alma Mater have established the KU Leuven Wilfried Martens Fund.

The Fund finances academic education and research activities and projects focused on the themes that were dear to Wilfried Martens during his European political career, such as the EU’s institutional architecture, its neighbourhood policy and the development of European parties and foundations. The Fund also pays attention to the dialogue between politics and religions and to the European aspirations of the countries of the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership.
