PhD scholarships

CEURUS funds a number of Ph.D. positions in the framework of doctoral programmes in Political Science and Law at the University of Tartu (see the list of current and past CEURUS PhD fellows below).

Please note that while CEURUS will continue to finance Ph.D. students already enrolled in the relevant programmes, however, no new grants are being awarded after 2013. Individuals seeking admission into doctoral programmes at the University of Tartu are advised to contact the coordinators of the relevant Ph.D. programmes to inquire about other available funding options.

CEURUS hosted a number of visiting Ph.D. students between 2011 and 2014. Read here about current funding opportunities for visiting students.
