DURING THE SELECTION PROCESS BETWEEN ADMISSIBLE FILES, CIUF WILL TAKE ACCOUNT OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA: The academic curriculum For courses, priority will be granted to candidates who have not yet obtained a postgraduate degree, save for exceptional circumstances specified in the application file. The benefit of previous scholarships Priority will be granted to candidates who have not yet benefited from a scholarship in Belgium. Professional experience CIUF grants scholarships as a matter of priority to candidates who, upon termination of their University studies, have had the opportunity of practising a profession in relation to problems of development. The social impact of professional experience constitutes an element of assessment. Membership of a partner institution Candidates who are appointed by an institution with which CIUF has concluded a partnership, either within the framework of institutional co-operation or within the framework of an own-initiative programme, will be granted priority in case of equality on the other selection criteria. The commitment of the candidate to development activities Special attention will be given to files of candidates who, beyond their academic qualities, have shown commitment to development issues. This commitment may materialise in having worked with the most disadvantaged social categories, and in having tried to define with them the efficient means to defend and promote their interests. Nationality CIUF aims at diversifying the geographic origin of the scholars. It sees to it that in the overall of the international courses and training programmes organised in the framework of its North-Actions programme, candidates origina-ting in sub-saharian Africa represent 50% of the total number of scholars. Equality of sexes CIUF grants special attention to the participation of women in the international courses and training programmes organised within the framework of the North-Actions programme. Perspectives of future reinstatement Major guarantees are required concerning the return of the candidate to his country of origin or to another developing country, as well as his reinstatement in a profession that enables him to put the training acquired in Belgium at the service of development (e.g. labour contract, formal promise of appointment) and to produce a multiplier effect to the benefit of his country of origin.
