Full-funded CICOPS Scholarships 2018


Full-funded CICOPS Scholarships 2018

Deadline: May 31, 2017


In 1996, the Technical-Scientific Committee of CICOPS approved a scholarship project aimed at fostering research collaboration between academic from Developing Countries and the University of Pavia. The scholarships were designed for both junior and senior members of universities in Developing Countries or members of major research centers and international organizations with specific interests in the field of development studies.

Since 1998, the University of Pavia and the Institute for University Studies (EDiSU) have offered about ten scholarships yearly for a four to ten week stay in Pavia, during which time the scholars carry out research with professors in the department that hosts them and often hold seminars.

As of 2017, about 200 scholarships had been awarded to academics from more than 54 different countries to carry out research in Pavia.
CICOPS Scholarships are now being accepted for 2018. Academics and other researchers from Developing Countries who wish to carry out research in collaboration with a professor at the University of Pavia are welcome to apply. Applicants must have the support of a collaborator at the University of Pavia who invites them with a formal invitation letter (applications without invitation letter won’t be taken into consideration).
