The Belgian government has been funding the students through the representation of the Belgian Development Agency (BTC) since 2005 for tuition fees, travel and subsistence costs and fieldwork costs. With the support of the Belgian government, PLAAS is able to achieve its training and scholarship objectives as stated in our mission and vision statements. These bursaries have made a tremendous contribution to the study of land and agrarian issues in Africa through supporting these students in their studies.


The funding has supported the studies of a range of students who are actively involved in government, local and international development organisations and civil society organisations focusing on land issues. The programme would like to thank the Belgian government and the representatives of the BTC for their continuous and invaluable support to our students and to the programme.


Bursaries may be available (South African applicants only).
