Grants for Foreigners
PhD, deadline: 31 Jan.
The European University Institute (EUI) offers graduate students a unique opportunity to study in an international setting with an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together leading scholars in each subject area. Most alumni go on to take up positions in academia across Europe and beyond, while many also work in EU institutions, national governments or the private sector, as well as international organisations. The campus, also home to the Historical Archives of the European Union and a first-class library, is spread out across the Tuscan hillside overlooking Florence. It is two hours by train to Milan or Rome, and there are international flights from airports at Florence, Pisa and Bologna to many destinations. As an international institution with a European focus, the EUI is probably the culturally most diverse doctoral school anywhere in the world. Its educational environment combines academic excellence with the lifeworld of a truly international community.
The EUI prepares researchers for developing and defending a doctoral thesis in the fields of economics, history and civilization, law, and political and social science. About 160 doctoral research grants are awarded annually by the EU member states and other European national authorities to successful candidates admitted to the EUI Doctoral Programme.
While each department structures its own four-year programme, researchers are involved in seminars and other events where they are encouraged to actively participate and present their work. During their Ph.D. programme students may travel within the EU and further to conduct research. There are also exchange opportunities with other leading academic institutions.
