Scholarship for Master in Public Management…

Scholarship for Master in Public Management candidates from (small) cities and municipalities

Learn More

Each academic year, Antwerp Management School awards a maximum of 5 scholarships to employees of (small) cities and municipalities who wish to participate in the Master in Public Management. The tuition fee is thus reduced from € 10 050 to € 7500.

A committee decides on the basis of the submitted application whether the candidate and the municipality are eligible for this scholarship.


The candidate has a master's degree (or an equivalent bachelor's degree through work experience) and has worked for at least 3 years in the municipality as a 'manager' or project leader.

How does this work?

A concrete challenge for the municipality is proposed and will be examined in the final master's thesis. In this way, the participant creates measurable impact in his municipality. A social problem will be investigated and possible solutions will be worked out and can be implemented afterwards.

This may also result in a publication that also offers useful insights for other municipalities. Examples of such master's theses by alumni are available on request.

Procedure & committee members

A file is submitted via https://campus.antwerpmanagementschool.be/executive-master-public-management . This file contains the following components:

  • Personal details of the candidate;

‘Opleidingen zijn vaak het eerste dat geschrapt wordt uit de agenda als het te druk is. Toen mijn kandidatuur aanvaard werd door AMS en VVSG en ik deze kans ook kreeg binnen de stad Herentals, heb ik ze met beide handen gegrepen. Ik kon niet meer ontsnappen.’

— Tanja Matheus, adjunct-algemeen directeur stad Herentals
