Scholarship for lawyers, in particular from developing countries and countries engaged in the transition to market economy

In line with UNIDROIT’s legal co-operation activities, a scholarship programme has been developed with a view to facilitating access to research facilities for top-level lawyers primarily from developing countries or countries in economic transition. A limited number of scholarships are available (two months’ average duration), funded by outside donors who make generous contributions on a voluntary basis. The grants cover part or all of the cost of living in Rome for the designated period.

Selection criteria include the candidate’s level of qualification, the nature of the candidate’s research project (with preference given to subjects that fit in with the Organisation’s Work Programme) and its potential for practical application in his/her country of origin. A good working knowledge of English and/or French is indispensable.

To apply, please download and fill the application form from the scholarship programme webpage.
