Dear Sir or Madam,
The ACADEMIC SWISS CAUCASUS NET (ASCN) offers short-term grants to Armenian and Georgian PhD. students in social sciences or humanities.
Selected grant holders have the opportunity to spend up to three months at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland to work on their PhD. thesis or to participate in academic conferences. They have full access to the University library and benefit from state of the art research infrastructure. Besides, these grants give junior researchers the opportunity to extend their academic networks by meeting scholars in their field of expertise.
Grants cover visa costs, travel costs, accommodation as well as daily expenses. Accommodation is organized directly by the ASCN Programme.
Applications can be made anytime during the year. For organization matters, candidates must apply at least 4 weeks in advance.
General information about the grant programme as well as the application form is to be found on here.
We thank you for forwarding this announcement to potential candidates and interested scholars.
