Summer Course: participation fee and grants

The Summer course for the study of the arts in Flanders is a joint initiative of the Flemish Art Collection, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, the Groeninge Museum Bruges, the University of Ghent, the Catholic University of Louvain, the Rubenianum and the Flemish Research Centre for the Arts in the Burgundian Netherlands. The first edition of the summer course titled The age of van Eyck in context will take place from June 21 through July 1 2015. Its content is coordinated by the Groeninge Museum and the Flemish Research Centre for the arts in the Burgundian Netherlands. The program will take place in Bruges, Ghent and Brussels. The language of the summer course will be English.

The aim of the summer course is to bring to Flanders, annually, a select group of 18 national and international, highly qualified young researchers. They will be presented with an intensive 10-day program of lectures, discussions, and visits related to the specific course theme within Flemish art. Participants have a master's degree or are PhD-student. Participants are specialised in 15th century art form the Burgundian Netherlands.

With support of the Flemish Government the participation fee of the Summer Course is now fixed at €900 per person. The fee includes the full 10-day programme, 10 overnight hotel stays (Bruges, Ghent, Brussels) in a single-occupancy room, all transportation within the programme, all entry tickets, 2 receptions, 5 dinners and 5 lunches. Not included in the participation fee is the transportation to and from Belgium, 4 lunches and 4 dinners.

To facilitate students with limited financial means the organisation of the Summer Course for the Study of the Arts in Flanders together with the Flemish Government has made available two grants of €450 each. These grants will be awarded (preferably) to one European and one non-European applicant of the Summer Course. The recipients of the grant will pay a reduced participation fee of €450 instead of the regular fee.
