Preference is given to applicants under the age of 30 with a reading and speaking knowledge of Dutch, French, or German.
Applicants should make their own arrangements to register or affiliate with a Belgian University or research institution. B.A.E.F. Fellows must reside in Belgium during the tenure of their fellowship.
