About the Coimbra Group Scholarship Programme 

Since 1999 the Coimbra Group has offered young researchers from outside the EU the opportunity to carry  out part of their research for a period of one to three months at a Coimbra Group University. While this  scholarship programme was initially established to assist scholars from disadvantaged areas in Central and  Eastern Europe (modelled on the Oxford Hospitality Scheme for Polish Scholars), it was expanded several  years ago and consolidated into a set of three programmes for young researchers from the European  Neighbourhood, Sub-Saharan Africa, and young professors and researchers from Latin America. In 2021,  Coimbra Group received a record number of applications, and its member universities offered a record  number of scholarships to young researchers. This success will hopefully be repeated this year.
