Coimbra Group Short Stay Scholarship Programme 2023 for Young Researchers from Sub-Saharan Africa

The Coimbra Group Short Stay Scholarship Programme 2023 for Young Researchers from Sub-Saharan Africa is currently accepting applications. Young African scholars from higher education institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa are welcome to attend universities in the Coimbra Group for brief stays (often 1 to 3 months).

This scholarship program’s main goals are to give scholars the opportunity to do research they are already involved in at their home school and to support them in developing academic and research networks in Europe. The Coimbra Group Office is in responsibility of the administrative management of the applications, while the scholarships are financially supported by the Coimbra Group member universities taking part in this initiative.
