UNIDROIT’s Scholarships Programme offers Research Scholarships for Lawyers from Developing Countries and Countries in Economic Transition
A scholarship (average length: two months, with a minimum of six weeks; exceptionally, four months in the case of the UK Foundation) may cover all or part of the cost of living in Rome for the designated period, but beneficiaries are in principle expected to meet their own travel expenses.
Scholarship Application Eligibility Criteria:
- The subject of the candidate’s research project, which must be related to uniform law / international private law (see details of the holdings of the UNIDROIT Library), preference being given to subjects that fit in with the Organisation’s Work Programme;
- The project’s potential for practical application in the beneficiary’s country of origin, preference being given to projects relating to the drafting of national laws or which aim at promoting the adoption of uniform law instruments;
- The candidate’s qualifications (“graduate” or “post-graduate”) and position (academic, civil servant, judge, practitioner);
A good working knowledge of English and/or French is indispensable.
In that case, a formal letter is issued by the Secretary-General which may be used by applicants in support of their direct requests to potential sponsors to finance their stay in Rome.
