Conditions of Award

Duration


The fellowships are for the duration of 5 or 10 months between September 2020 and June 2021. Candidates should indicate their first and second choices from the following options:

  • 5 months:
    • September 2020- January 2021
    • February 2021- June 2021
  • 10 months:
    • September 2020 - June 2021

Residence


Fellows must reside in the area of Florence for the duration of their Fellowship so that they can take an active part in the activities of the EUI and the fellowship programme. The programme may include some visits to institutions, experts and events outside Florence and Italy.

Grant


The basic grant is € 2,500 per month.

Successful applicants who receive other grants or salaries must disclose this to the EUI. The amount of the Fellowship will be fixed at a lower rate depending on the amount of the additional income (upon production of relevant supporting documents).

If applicable, family allowances will be added to the basic grant.

Family allowance


A household allowance of up to € 300 per month is paid to Fellow with a partner if the partner lives with him /her in Florence and on the condition that the partner's income is less than € 2,000 per month. The sum of income and allowance cannot exceed € 2,000 per month (i.e. if the income is more than € 1,700, the allowance will be paid only to top up to € 2,000).

An allowance of € 200 per month is paid for each dependent child.

Fellows are entitled to these allowances if they can declare that they are not receiving any similar allowance from another source, and upon submission of relevant supporting documents (i.e. marriage or partner certificate, or proof of cohabitation in Florence; birth certificates).

For dependent children in full-time education and over the age of 18, a school or university certificate is required. No allowance is paid for dependent children over the age of 26.

Taxation


The fellowship is not taxed by EUI. Fellows are, however, required to comply with any other tax provisions which may be applicable to them.

Medical insurance


Fellows must have adequate medical insurance coverage during their stay at the Institute. They can either provide proof of their own insurance scheme, or subscribe to the EUI's private sickness and health insurance scheme at their own expense. See the Cigna Insurance Scheme for conditions.

Travel expenses


Fellows (but not their families) receive reimbursement for the incoming trip from their place of origin to Florence, and for the outgoing trip to their destination at the end of their fellowship.

  • First-class rail (travel by car is also reimbursed on this basis)
  • Economy class air fare

The maximum amount for travel reimbursement amounts to €1,200 including both incoming and outgoing trip. Taxi expenses are not reimbursed.
