NB! There are no new CEURUS PhD scholarships awarded in 2013!
The Centre for EU-Russia studies offers scholarships to Ph.D. students whose doctoral research project focuses on a topic relevant to the contemporary agenda of EU-Russia relations. For the time being CEURUS PhD scholarships are awarded primarily to students enrolled in the Political Science Ph.D. programme. However, PhD students enrolled in other PhD programmes at the University of Tartu and working in the field of EU-Russia may also apply.
Scholarships are offered on a competitive basis. Award criteria include:
1) relevance of the research topic in the context of EU-Russia relations;
2) quality and feasibility of the proposed Ph.D. project
