Scholarship Programme for Young African researchers


Universities of the Coimbra Group offer short research stay to young researchers from Sub-Saharan Africa. 
Due to the high volume of applications the Coimbra Group Office is unable to answer queries, therefore applicants are requested to read the brochure carefully before filling the application form. The deadline for applying is 15 March 2011. 
Please note that this scheme is only targeting countries from the Sub-Saharan region, therefore countries from North Africa are unfortunately not covered.

Please read the brochure before applying!

1 – Applicants should provide the name and contact details of a tutor in the receiving institution who will supervise their work during their stay abroad. If you do not have any contacts, we suggest you visit the website of your chosen institution. The Coimbra Group Office is not in the position to provide assistance in this.

2 – Given the high volume of applications the Coimbra Group Office will not be able to answer individual requests. Please make sure you read carefully the application brochure.

3 – Applicants can select one institution only. Multiple applications from the same candidate will be rejected.

4 – Applicants MUST provide a short overview of their work programme (state how a research stay at a Coimbra Group University will contribute to your research work). Applications without a summary of the work programme will be rejected.
