Programme Start Date
The call for applications for the academic year 2022-23 has closed.
In the 2022/2023 academic year, STG plans to allocate approximately thirty fellowships. The programme can usually select around four to five percent of those who apply in any given year. All the applications are reviewed as long as they are submitted on time using the online platform. In the first step of the selection procedure, all applications are reviewed based on how well they match the application criteria. The applications are all discussed by designated STG personnel to highlight some especially promising applications (normally three to four times the number eventually chosen).
In the second step of the selection procedure, the selection committee members, comprised of STG faculty and the Director of STG, provide a list of recommended applicants for the fellowship. The committee discusses the merit of the individual applications and also takes into account the match between the perceived needs of the given candidate and the opportunities the programme offers. At this point the committee also considers the synergies and diversity among the potential Fellows as a cohort. The result is a mutually agreed short list and a reserve list to be presented to the EUI Executive Committee for its consideration. Their decision is final and no appeal is possible.
STG is not in the position to give advice on individual applications or to give feedback about the applications. Applicants cannot contact the decision makers in this process. The application deadline for the 2022/2023 fellowship is 25 January 2022 (17:00 CET). No extensions will be granted and late applications will not be accepted. The final decision is communicated to the applicants within four months of the application deadline by the Academic Service of the EUI.
