THE THIRD CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR EDEN SCHOLARSHIPS WILL BE OPEN ONLY FOR POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS – MOBILITIES FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS
NOTE: THE HOST UNIVERSITIES MAY ENFORCE ELIGIBILITY RESTRICTIONS REGARDING THE TIME ELAPSED FROM THE PHD THESIS DEFENSE. FOR THIS VERY REASON A CERTAIN NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS HAS BEEN DECLARED NOT ELIGIBLE DURING PREVIOUS CALLS.
- 1. All uploaded documents should be in English. At this stage of the application, you may translate the documents yourself. However, you should keep in mind that, if selected, you will have to provide a scanned copy of the original documents, together with the authorized translation; in case of any discrepancy between the information (e.g. dates, years, grades, etc.) provided by the 2 translations, you will be automatically disqualified.
- 2. Some partner universities may ask for additional documents and certificates (for example a proof of registration, degrees and transcripts from all previous study levels, a pre-admission letter from the host university or certified translations). Please make sure that you have read the corresponding University Information Sheet that is available, on the Partners page, for each partner university. Furthermore, you should check the specific description of the study programme you would like to follow in the Academic Offer section of the website.
