Deadline and admission procedures

The Summer School targets MA, PhD students and young researchers. Candidates must have a strong interest and some background in the School’s topics and be fluent both in spoken and written English, as it is the working language of the Summer School.
The number of participants is limited to 30.
Ten scholarships will be granted to particularly deserving students coming from one of the Countries included in the official list of Developing Countries made by the World Bank. These students have to state their disadvantaged status and motivate their request for a grant to the Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence.
All participants will receive a Certificate which may be used to acquire academic credits in agreement with home institutions. Moreover, they have to prepare a one-page presentation of their paper or research project that will be presented on a poster in one evening session.
