Utrecht University offers Short Stay Fellowships for PhD Students from China and India in 2009
Following the success of previous years, Utrecht University offers this year another 30 short stay fellowships for PhD candidates from China (15) and from India (15).
The purpose of this 3 month visit to Utrecht is to further the knowledge and interest in the research that is being carried out by research groups in Utrecht, China and India and to strengthen cooperation between these groups.
Students from China and India in all disciplines conducting research at Utrecht University Partners (UUP)* are considered eligible candidates. Applications for PhD students who are not registered at one of the Utrecht University Partners are also welcome, but will not have a priority.
This programme is fully sponsored by Utrecht University. Selected candidates are offered an economy class return ticket to and from Amsterdam (up to a maximum of € 1150), visa reimbursement, accommodation in Utrecht, a medical and third party liability insurance, and a monthly allowance. The UU faculty/research group will cover for the research infrastructure and supervision costs.
The application deadline is Thursday 26 March 2009 (at 17.00 Central European Time). We advise you to start your application a.s.a.p.
