In 1996, the Technical-Scientific Committee of CICOPS approved a scholarship project aimed at fostering research collaboration between academics from developing countries and the University of Pavia. The scholarships were 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. Since 1998, the University of Pavia and the Institute for University Studies (EDiSU) have offered about ten scholarships yearly for a four to ten week stay in Pavia, during which time the scholars carry out joint research with professors in the department that hosts them and often hold seminars. As of 2011, about 150 scholarships had been awarded to academics from 40 different countries to carry out research in Pavia.
Deadline: June 30th, 2012
CICOPS Scholarships are now being accepted for 2013. 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. For further information, please read the Call for Applications for 2013 CICOPS Scholarships and have a look at the FAQ.
