The ongoing IUC programme with MMU is the cornerstone of the Uganda country programme.
The South Initiative (SI) 'Evidence based Inclusive Education for Children with Disabilities (CWD) in Wakiso district' made two interesting videos about their project:
A person in Uganda, under the name Anthony Kigozi, promotes scholarship opportunities related to or financed by VLIR-UOS (and sometimes Makerere university).
He claims being in charge of selecting scholarship candidates in collaboration with VLIR-UOS, or sometimes with other agencies that grant scholarships.
VLIR-UOS has no connection with this person and did not assign this person in any possible way.
Please note that:
applications must be submitted directly to the Flemish universities (in Belgium) and not to any local intermediary body or person in partner countries
no payments are required to apply, neither in Belgium nor in Uganda
persons who claim that certain fees should be paid in the context of submitting an application for a VLIR-UOS scholarship, do this in their personal name and in violation of VLIR-UOS rules. VLIR-UOS takes formal distance from those people and their practices
the only valid information about VLIR-UOS scholarships and application procedures is the information on the VLIR-UOS website or on the website of the Flemish universities and university colleges.
Uganda is an important partner country for us. Since 2003, we have spent almost EUR 16 million in cooperation with Uganda, including a long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) Programme with Mountains of the Moon University (MMU).
