Arqus Talent Scholarship Fund – First call 2023

The Arqus European University Alliance, of which the University of Padua is part of, is pleased to announce the first call for applications 2023 of its Arqus Talent Scholarship Fund.

The Arqus Talent Scholarship Fund is designed to attract and retain talent at postgraduate level from around the world.

In the first call for applications, Arqus is looking for talented graduates and students who want to pursue a Doctoral Degree at one of the Arqus partner universities (Granada, Graz, Leipzig, Lyon 1, Maynooth, Minho, Padua, Vilnius and Wroclaw) including a compulsory mobility at a second Arqus partner university.

The scholarship is composed of a subsistence allowance of 1,400€/month to cover the student’s living costs, medical insurance and a materials allowance.

In addition, the Arqus Talent Scholarship Fund will cover the tuition fee at the student’s entrance university.

The Arqus European University Alliance would also like to support students with fewer opportunities under this scholarship scheme by providing a special needs fund of 250€/month.

Priority will be given to students with fewer opportunities, refugees/asylum seekers and applicants with a Master’s degree not obtained at the Arqus university where they will undertake the doctoral studies or where they are currently enrolled.
