The European Academy of Yuste Foundation announces 10 research and mobility grants for European studies, Carlos V European Award - Sofia Corradi, Mamma Erasmus
The European Academy of Yuste Foundation is offering a grants programme linked to the Carlos V European Award, aimed at researchers currently working on a doctoral thesis in any field of study. The theme of the grants is adapted to the profile of the person presented with the Award, and the theme of this edition’s grants call is, from a multidisciplinary perspective, “Peace and European values as a potential model for integration and progress in a global world”.
The grants are aimed at researchers enrolled on a PhD programme and currently working on a doctoral thesis in History, Political Science, Economics, Law, or other disciplines within Human and Social Sciences, as well as other branches of science, on any theme related to the aim and orientation of the grants call. Working languages are English and Spanish.
The value of the grant for each beneficiary is 2500 euros. Around June 2017 the European Academy of Yuste Foundation will also be organising a Doctoral Seminar in Contemporary European Multidisciplinary Studies, under the framework of the grants programme, in Yuste. There, the selected researchers will be able to present their works, which are also guaranteed to be published by academic publisher Peter Lang.
The European Research and Mobility grants for European Studies, Carlos V European Award - Sofia Corradi - Mamma Erasmus, are intended to encourage study and research in the European field, and have been organised in collaboration with the SEGEI (Socio-Economic Governance and European Identity) Research Network, and the University of Extremadura, with additional support from the Regional Government of Extremadura and the Italian Government.
The selected researchers will go on to form part of the European ‘Alumni de Yuste’ Network, set up to facilitate the exchange of projects and information between researchers specialising in European matters who have received one of the grants. There are now more than 70 researchers from different European, Latin American, and other Mediterranean countries’ universities in the Network.
