01. Funding for studying Dutch abroad

Article 5.f of the Dutch Language Union Treaty states that the Dutch Language Union (Nederlandse Taalunie) promotes the tuition of the Dutch language, Dutch literature and Dutch cultural history abroad.

As a part of this, the Language Union supports Dutch studies abroad by means of grants and other instruments. These grants promote professionalism in Dutch tuition and studies in higher education abroad.

The grants are allocated according to an established system.

The Dutch Language Union distinguishes:

A. Funding for Dutch in the border regions

Dutch is spoken in many parts of Belgium's French-speaking community, in northern France and in the German border region, and it is also offered as a subject at primary and secondary schools and in adult education. The Dutch Language Union provides funding for such classes in cooperation with local authorities.
