  • Applicants who already hold a PhD will not be admitted to any programme with similar research topics to that of their PhD. Candidates who have already benefited from a PhD scholarship, regardless of the place and year, are not eligible for another scholarship. All candidates may submit their application for the present Call, subject to confirmation.
