EUI Special Doctoral Fellowships

With a view to promoting the diversification of the EUI’s student body, the EUI earmarks special scholarships for candidates from non-EU Member States who are not eligible for any other funding programmes:

  • the Adam Smith doctoral fellowship in Economics
  • the Jacob Burckhardt doctoral fellowship in History and Civilization
  • the Hans Kelsen doctoral fellowship in Law
  • the Hannah Arendt doctoral fellowship in Political and Social Sciences 

Degree Requirements:

To be eligible for an EUI Special Doctoral Fellowship, candidates must have successfully completed a Master or equivalent degree in an academic discipline relevant to the doctoral programme of the department and the research proposal. The degree must be awarded before 31 August.

Application Procedure

There is no separate grant application procedure to follow. The application for admission to the EUI doctoral programme is automatically an application for an EUI Doctoral Fellowship:
