AIM : Professor van Genugten has established a
Scholarship Fund to assist graduate &
postgraduate students and early career
professionals in Africa to attend the ILA2016
Biennial Conference in Johannesburg. The aim of
the scholarship is to allow young African
scholars to participate in the conference, to take
part in the debate, and meet colleagues, in order
to inspire them to continue working in the
domain of international law. Meeting colleagues
and receiving inspiration is important to become
or remain active in the field and to keep working
on topics that require so much effort and a
nuanced understanding of ‘legal issues in a
societal context.
The candidate must:
be enrolled in a graduate or post-graduate
course on international law or be an early
career professional in international law in an
African country (first five years);
show a strong interest in international law
(which can be demonstrated by, for example,
a law school major, classes, papers and extra-
curricular activities);
explain how participation in the conference
would benefit his/her research or career in
international law;
establish that he/she does not have access to
other sources of funding, for instance from
his/her home institution;
AWARD: Full Scholarships cover the registration
fees; accommodation as selected by the host
branch, reasonable travel costs and a per diem
allowance depending on the cost of living in the
