What is it about?
The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund supports sustainable water management in developing countries, among others by financing on-the-spot internships for students from developing countries who are studying in Belgium.
The Elisabeth & Amelie Fund takes into consideration an integrated approach to water management that includes technical and/or sociological aspects.
The internship will take place in a developing country (the student’s country of origin or another country). It will be tied to a master’s thesis or an equivalent) and under the responsibility of the Belgian academic institution where the student is studying.
The grant will cover the expenses inherent to the internship, up to a maximum of € 5,000.
The internship, which should last 1 to 2 months, must take place between December 2021 and the end of August 2022. About ten grants shall be awarded.
Through the internship, investigate why water access at the 'Marion' dam (Haiti) remains problematic for local residents; and propose an integrated water management plan.
