Grant Information for Ph.D. Candidates
To qualify for a national grant, you must meet the specific requirements set by the national grant authorities. These may include conditions with regard to your nationality, residence, degree and its time of award.
The application for admission to the EUI doctoral programme is automatically an application for a national grant, with the following exceptions: Greece, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and the United Kingdom. If you apply for a grant from one of these countries, your application to the EUI can ONLY be accepted if you separately file with the grant authority an application or a specific set of documents by the deadline specified by the relevant grant authority.
Grants and tuition fees for Ph.D. candidates are covered by the national grant-awarding authority for Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,
Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.

Candidates from these countries may be admitted on condition they are able to secure external sponsorship.
