The international fellowships program provides support to young researchers working in academic and research institutions from eligible countries preparing a doctoral thesis.
Research grants cover residence costs for a 5 to 10 month period in a renowned university or research center.
Fellows are expected to advance their research work mainly by using the facilities and resources provided by the host institution and by interacting with peers.
Only lecturers and researchers from eligible countries working on their doctoral thesis can apply for the fellowship.
Candidates should be under 45 years, and have completed any course work or exams required for their doctoral program.
Candidate’s field of research should be related to development at the master’s level, in fields such as economics, health, education, agriculture, environment, natural resource management, or other development‑related subject.
Candidates are requested to submit a budget for their fellowship covering the costs related to their research program: travel; insurance and living expenses; fees for courses and participation to seminars; and a books and software allowance.
The grant amount to be awarded to each fellow will be decided by the Selection Committee. The maximum amount of the grant is US$ 25,000.
