Coimbra Group has launched Scholarship Programme for short research stay in Europe

The programme is intended for young researchers and staff from universities in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the European Neighbourhood.

Coimbra Group member universities are offering almost 80 scholarships for young professors and researchers that are both national and residents of Latin American, Sub-Saharan Africa or European neighbourhood countries.
With the aim to enable scholars to internationalise the research they perform at their home institution and help them establish academic and research contacts in Europe, the initiative will specifically support short-term research visits to one of the 20 participating universities on the European Continent.

How to apply

Applications should be submitted online through the official Coimbra Group website: www.coimbra-group.eu/scholarships. Please note that each regional scholarship programme has specific requirements and that a letter of acceptance must be provided by an academic supervisor at the host university. The deadline for submissions is 15 April 2022 at midnight (Brussels time, UTC+01:00).

About the Coimbra Group Scholarship Programme

Since 1999 the Coimbra Group has offered young researchers from outside the EU the opportunity to carry out part of their research for a period of one to three months at a Coimbra Group University. While this scholarship programme was initially established to assist scholars from disadvantaged areas in Central and Eastern Europe (modelled on the Oxford Hospitality Scheme for Polish Scholars), it was expanded several years ago and consolidated into a set of three programmes for young researchers from the European Neighbourhood, Sub-Saharan Africa, and young professors and researchers from Latin America. In 2021, Coimbra Group received a record number of applications, and its member universities offered a record number of scholarships to young researchers. This success will hopefully be repeated this year.
