Students, professionals and post-doc researchers from Kosovo who are staff members of Kosovan public universities are invited to apply for a PhD/Post-doc fellowship for (Austrian) universities with compliance to the strategy document “Higher KOS– Promoting Institutional Development in Higher Education and Research in Kosovo”. A total number of 15 PhD or post-doc scholarships will be granted for Kosovan PhD students and researchers.

Five PhD scholarships will be granted alongside the programmatic partnerships at Austrian institutions, five PhD scholarships and five post-doc fellowships will be granted for Austrian universities. In case that an appropriate Austrian partner cannot be identified, universities from the region can be considered as partners. During their studies the scholars will keep close contact to their home institutions (if possible parts of the studies will be performed at the home institution in the form of a “sandwich programme”) in view to their further professional career at these institutions. After having finished the PhD studies or the post-doc fellowship the scholars are obliged to return back to their home institution and to work at least for 5 years for a Kosovan public university.
