    [h=1]What do IRO scholarships include?[/h] The scholarships are only granted for doctoral or pre-doctoral programmes. Scholarships for a pre-doctoral programme are awarded for only one year. The scholarship may be converted into a scholarship for doctoral studies, thus extended for 4 more years, on the condition that you pass the pre-doctoral programme with distinction and are admitted to the doctoral programme.
    The maximum period for which you may be awarded a scholarship is thus 5 years: 1 pre-doctoral year and 4 doctoral years. The scholarship is renewable each year and its renewal depends on the annual evaluation by your supervisor. Further extensions are not possible through the Interfaculty Council for Development Co-operation and further scholarships cannot be awarded, since the law permits tax-free doctoral scholarships only for a maximum of 4 years.

    [h=3]Obligations[/h] In accepting the KU Leuven scholarship, candidates commit themselves to completing the programme requirements to the utmost of their capabilities, efficiently and without delays. They also promise, upon completing the programme, to put themselves and the knowledge acquired with the help of the scholarship at the service of their fellow citizens or those of another developing country.
    The monthly scholarship allowance for a partner will be cancelled if his or her annual income in Belgium exceeds € 4,165.
    All doctoral scholarship students are strongly encouraged to attend one Dutch language course and one academic English course, during the PhD studies. The costs of one of each of those courses, will be reimbursed if successfully completed.
    [h=3]Conditions for terminating the scholarship[/h] KU Leuven reserves the right to cancel the scholarship if a student does not comply with the academic requirements agreed upon in the scholarship conditions or if he/she does not live up to the moral standards of KU Leuven.
