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, either in Belgium or 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.
