Visiting scholars in the University of Pavia
In order to promote international cooperation particularly with developing countries the University of Pavia and the Institute for the Right to University Studies (EDiSU) are offering for the year 2015 10 scholarships for visiting scholars for a period of stay of 4 to 10 weeks at the University of Pavia. 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.
The scholarships are designed for both junior and senior members of universities in developing countries or members of major research centres and international organizations with specific interests in the field of development studies. Applicants must have either two years of either teaching experience or activity in international organisations and institution. CICOPS scholarships are foreseen for research collaboration in the short period (from 4 to 10 weeks) in order to encourage the mobility of researchers from developing countries and cannot be awarded in case of doctoral studies or enrollment in a Postgraduate course at an Italian University.
The scholarship includes travel (economy class), board and lodging expenses and a pocket money of 150.00 Euro (gross) per week.
The students can apply online. Applications must be supported by a letter of invitation from a teacher of the University of Pavia, someone who would work with you on a joint research while in Pavia. Without a formal invitation from a professor of the University of Pavia your application will not be taken into consideration.
