Scholarship for doctoral researchers to stay in Lausanne for a duration of one to three months
The Henri Rieben Scholarship of the Foundation Jean Monnet is put in contest for the 11th consecutive year.
Amounting to 3,000 CHF net per month in addition to the reimbursement of expenses for the journey (place of residence – Lausanne – place of residence), the scholarship allows doctoral researchers from around the world to stay in the premises of the Foundation for a duration of one to three months.
Whatever the discipline of the researchers, their doctoral thesis will have to regard the history or the stakes of the European construction process, or else the relations between Switzerland and Europe.
The scholarships awarded each academic year encourage consultation and exploitation of the Foundation’s resources, such as the private archives of Jean Monnet, Robert Schuman (European papers), Robert Marjolin or those of Jacques Delors (1985-1995 period). As well as, recently, the archives of the Swiss diplomat Benedict de Tscharner and those of the European activist Franck Biancheri. The Foundation also possesses the resources of a media library, a European documentation centre and a rich specialised library. Fellows can also access the resources of the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law located close to the Foundation.
The grant holders selected will be based at the Dorigny Farm, headquarters of the Foundation, located on the Lausanne University Campus.
