Eurac: Applications Open for the Federal Scholar in Residence Program 2018


The Eurac Research Institute for Comparative Federalism has established the yearly Federal Scholar in Residence Program in order to enhance the comparative study of federalism and regionalism by providing an opportunity for exchange among scholars in the field so as to inspire and develop new project ideas.

Each edition’s winner is granted a research stay of up to three weeks at Eurac Research in Bolzano/Bozen, South Tyrol, Italy and gets the opportunity to discuss and present their research on issues related to comparative federalism, regionalism and/or intergovernmental relations with international experts in the field.

Although you can flexibly plan your stay, the month of February would represent a particular opportunity to develop new ideas while profiting from the international research environment of the renowned Eurac Research Winter School on Federalism and Governance.

Applications are due by 1 July 2017, and must include:

  • an (anonymized) full-fledged paper in English, German, Italian, French or Spanish;
  • the statement ‘I hereby confirm that the submitted work “TITLE” has not (yet) been published elsewhere’;
  • an abstract in English;
  • a short CV including the declaration ‘I authorize EURAC to use my personal data in accordance to decree 196/2003’; and
  • letter of motivation (max. 2 pages).

Further information concerning the application procedure and the program in general can be found at the Eurac website.
