The research topics should have strong connections with human rights and humanitarian law issues.


Scholarships will cover living expenses up to EUR 1.750 per month (the amount will be calculated according to living expenses in the host country).

The short-term scholarship program is open to Turkish citizens who are staff members of a university in Turkey including:

All applications with connections to human rights and humanitarian law issues are welcome. Applicants whose proposed research projects are related to the rights of the elderly, children, women, refugees, persons with disabilities, as well as the relationship between human rights and information and communication strategies (ICTs) and human rights cities will be given preference. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to apply; applicants who adopt an interdisciplinary approach in their works will be given preference.
