The European University Institute (EUI) in Florence, Italy, opens annual calls for its four-year doctoral programmes within its four departments: History and Civilization, Economics, Law, and Political and Social Sciences. The EUI works predominantly in English. Successful applicants to the EUI doctoral programmes are expected to work on their doctoral dissertations during the programme.
The EUI particularly supports international and comparative studies but the research need not focus on European history or society alone. The EUI offers graduate students a unique opportunity to study in an international setting with a multidisciplinary approach. Approximately 130 doctoral candidates are admitted to the EUI each year. The aim for Finnish universities is to secure places for 2–3 candidates.
The Research Council of Finland supports Finnish doctoral candidates at the EUI by means of scholarships worth 2,200 euros per month (€2,600 if the person has underage children). The candidates can also apply for a grant to cover their other research costs. The grant for work at the EUI pays for the statutory pension insurance of the grantee.
The Research Council’s call for applications opens in spring after the EUI has made its selections.
