Students, professionals and PostDoc researchers from Kosovo who are staff members of Kosovan public universities are invited to apply for a PhD/PostDoc fellowship for (Austrian) universities. The objective is that PhD students and PostDoc researchers will contribute to the institutional capacity development of their home institutions in Kosovo by completing their PhD studies and the PostDoc research at a university abroad.

After having finished the fellowship the scholars are obliged to return back to their home institution. Candidates already enrolled at an Austrian or foreign university are not eligible and applicants must not have studied/pursued research/pursued academic work in Austria in the last six months before taking up the grant.
