International students from developing nations who wish to pursue master’s degrees in Belgium are eligible to apply for ARES scholarships. The “Landscape” edict of November 7, 2013, which unifies 127 higher education institutions, formed the Academy of Research and Higher Education (ARES), a public interest organization with funding from the Federation Wallonie-Bruxile Les. Its job is to make sure that everything is coordinated amongst them and to push them to work together.
