Programme: EUI / US Exchange Programme
Up to four EUI researchers (usually one researcher per department) may attend University of Wisconsin at Madison (UWM) per academic year.
Researchers benefit from a non-degree visiting student status.
EUI researchers in the second or third year of the doctoral programme are eligible to participate in the exchange, subject to the support of their faculty supervisor and departmental recommendation.
Duration is normally 4 months (Sept. to Dec. - Fall; or mid-Jan. to mid-May - Spring; or end-May to mid-August, Summer).
Exempt from the payment of Tuition/fees to UWM
€4000 (lump sum) contributed by EUI towards defraying living costs
The application procedure for the exchange programmes is divided into two separate and distinct phases.
Phase 1 - Application to the ECO Department and the EUI
Researchers should submit their application to the ECO Department by 6 December 2018.
The application should include:
Letter of support from the faculty supervisor
Two to three page statement of intent ("work plan") summarizing proposed activity and indicating preferred period and length of stay
The Department will review all applications in its December departmental meeting and if approved the researcher should then submit their application to Academic Service by the Institutional deadline of 15 January 2019.
All applications from all departments will then be reviewed by the Entrance Board during January. Reseachers will be informed of the institute's decision accordingly.
Phase 2 - Application to UWM
Successful applicants then have to apply to UWM. UWM does not have any specific deadline although applications should be submitted in the semester prior to the intended stay.
