The Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) offers one-year Jean Monnet Fellowships (renewable for one more year) to scholars who have obtained their doctorate more than 5 years prior to the start of the fellowship, i.e. 1 September 2016 for the academic year 2016/17. The Centre offers up to 20 Fellowships a year. Fellows must live in Florence for the duration of their Fellowship so that they can take an active part in the academic activities of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies.
Jean Monnet Fellows are selected on the basis of a research proposal and of their CV. The research proposal should fit well with one of the Centre’s main research themes, programmes and projects. The three main research themes of the RSCAS are:
- Integration, Governance and Democracy;
- Regulating Markets and Governing Money;
- 21st Century World Politics and Europe.
- The fellowships are open to post docs candidates who have obtained their doctorate more than 5 years prior to the start of the fellowship on 1 September (to apply for 2016/17, the PhD should have been awarded before 1 September 2011);
- Candidates of all nationalities are eligible for the Jean Monnet Fellowships.
- The basic grant is EUR 2,500 per month. If the duration of the fellowship is less than 12 months, no grant will be paid for the month of August;
- Successful applicants benefiting from other grants or salaries must disclose this to the EUI, as the amount of the fellowship will be fixed at a lower rate (minimum EUR 1,250 per month) depending on the additional income;
- If applicable, family allowances will be added to the basic grant;
- Fellows (but not their families) receive reimbursement for one return trip from their home town to Florence. The maximum amount for travel reimbursement is EUR 1,200 for return travel:
