The study allowance, more commonly referred to as scholarship, is a financial aid granted by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation to students.

Foreign students may also apply. Citizens of EU must be resident in Belgium and one of the candidate’s parents must be working or have worked in Belgium. Applicants must be over 21 years old and must have been resident in Belgium for at least 5 years. Candidates must have completed 5 years of education in Belgium.
