Coimbra Group Scholarship Programme 2023

Deadline: April 7, 2023

Applications for the Coimbra Group Scholarship Programme 2023 for Young Professors & Researchers from LATAM Universities are now open. The Scholarship Programme for Young Professors and Researchers from Latin American Universities was launched for the first time in January 2004.

This initiative, which offers grants to finance short-term research visits, aims at favouring mobility and academic exchange between the two regions, Europe and Latin America.

The Coimbra Group is an association of 41 European universities which, among several other activities, promotes exchanges between European and Latin American researchers and academics. This call for applications for research visit grants is one of the ways in which exchanges are supported.


  • Be a national of and currently resident in a Latin American country. Candidates already living and/or studying in Europe will not be considered.
  • Hold a university degree or equivalent.
  • Be linked, as a professor or researcher, to a Latin American University recognised as such by the authorities of the country.
  • Use the Coimbra Group Office electronic application process. Only one application per candidate will be accepted.
  • Submit online an acceptance letter/email from the tutor/partner with whom the work programme will be undertaken in the host institution. This document is mandatory.
  • Must be born on or after 1 January 1982. Previously selected candidates can apply for a second grant, but they will not be prioritised.
