Coimbra Group scholarship programme – Call for proposals 2021

We are pleased to inform you that Coimbra Group has released its Scholarship Programme for young researchers from Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and European neighbourhood countries.

Coimbra Group universities are offering more than 70 scholarships for young professors and researchers that are both national and residents of Latin American, Sub-Saharan Africa or European neighbourhood countries.

With the aim to enable scholars to internationalise the research they perform at their home institution and help them establish academic and research contacts in Europe, the initiative will specifically support short-term research visits to one of the 19 participating universities on the European Continent.


Applications should be submitted online through the official Coimbra Group website.

The deadline is on April 16, 2021, midnight (Brussels time, UTC+01:00).

Please note that each regional scholarship programme has specific requirements and that a letter of acceptance must be provided by an academic supervisor at the host university.
