The Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam together with the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy (LILP) are currently offering partial scholarships to selected professionals who undertake the post-graduate diploma course on Land Management and Informal Settlement Regularization (LMISR).

1. 50% of the tuition fee (€ 1,250) *
2. Accommodation costs during the course in Rotterdam
3. Health Insurance

5. Visa Costs, if applicable
6. Course Materials
*Note that the other 50% (€ 1,250) of the tuition fee (€ 2,500) must be raised and paid for by the candidate him/herself.
Candidates from relevant work and/or academic experience that operate and/or are decision-makers at the local, metropolitan and national government levels, are development professionals, belong to civic society groups and/or academic teaching experts.
Content of the programme
The LMISR course aims to enable participants to understand the underlying causes of informal occupation of land and slum formation, to acquire knowledge and skills to formulate policies that prevent new slum formation, and improve existing ones. Throughout the course two questions will guide the learning process:

1. How can we create options for low-income households so that they don’t have to resort to informality?
2. How can we use land based instruments creatively and effectively?
The programme is innovative and intensive in nature and demands a proactive attitude from participants. The students are engaged in a number of specially designed learning environments that comprise not only lectures, but also discussions and controversial policy debates, role-playing games, case study analysis, and practical exercises. The course is designed especially for those involved with and/or interested in land, housing and urban policies in developing countries and countries in transition.
