Scholarship Description: Through its Jean Monnet Fellowship Programme the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies offers fellowships to post-docs in an early stage of their academic career. During their stay at the RSCAS, fellows work on a research topic that fits well in the overall research profile of the RSCAS and participate in the academic life of the Centre and of the EUI. Jean Monnet Fellowships have a duration of 1 or 2 years and are open to candidates who have received a doctorate within the last 7 years.
Number of award (s): Up to 25 Jean Monnet Fellowships are awarded annually.
Duration of award (s): The fellowships are for the duration of one or two years (12 or 24 months from September to August). Candidates should indicate the preferred duration of the fellowship in the application form. In case a fellow leaves before the fellowship ends (before late July), the grant will be accordingly reduced.
What does it cover? The basic grant is € 2,000 per month. If the duration of the fellowship is less than 12 months, no grant will be paid for the month of August. Successful applicants benefiting from other grants or salaries must disclose this to the EUI, as the amount of the fellowship will be fixed at a lower rate (minimum € 1,250 per month) depending on the additional income. If applicable, family allowances will be added to the basic grant as follows:
- A household allowance of € 300 per month is paid to fellows with a partner when the partner lives with the fellow in Florence and on the condition that the partner’s income does not exceed € 2,000 per month.
-There is a dependant’s allowance of € 200 per month for each dependent child living with the fellow in Florence.
-Fellows are entitled to these allowances if they can declare that they are not receiving any similar allowance from another source, and upon production of relevant documents (marriage certificate or a document that proves you are living together in Florence, birth certificates).
-For dependent children in full-time education and over the age of 18, a school or university certificate is required. No allowance is paid for dependent children over the age of 26.
Fellows must have adequate medical insurance cover during their stay at the Institute. They can either provide proof of their own insurance scheme or subscribe to the EUI’s private sickness and health insurance scheme at their own expense. Fellows (but not their families) receive reimbursement for one return trip from their home town to Florence.
-First-class rail (travel by car is also reimbursed on this basis)
-Economy class air fare
