The applicant applies to take up a master's degree programme at a Flemish higher education institution. • The applicant should have a high standard of academic performance and/or potential: • The student has a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.5 out of 4.0 Students who apply for a master's programme at a school of arts have at least: • An overall band score of minimum 6.5 on the IELTS test • A minimum total score of 90 on the TOEFL test • A B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference • Or a similar result in another official English language test (recognized by the host institution)

• The host institution also performs an academic check of the student’s file. The student has to be accepted by the host institution in order to receive the scholarship. This criterion applies even if the host institution’s decision to accept the student is taken after the selection for the Master Mind Scholarship programme. • The applicant can be nominated by only one Flemish higher education institution. If the applicant is preselected by more than one Flemish higher education institution, he/she has to choose one Flemish higher education institution to submit his/her application into the Mobility Online tool. • All nationalities can apply. The previous degree obtained should be from a higher education institution located outside Flanders. International students who have been on credit mobility in a hosting Flemish higher education institution are still eligible for a Master Mind Scholarship. • Students who are already enrolled in a Flemish higher education institution cannot apply
