Fully Funded 2020 Fellowship Program in Finland


New Applications for Fully Funded UNU-WIDER Fellowship Program 2020 in Finland now opened. Visiting Ph.D. Fellowship Programme gives registered doctoral students the opportunity to utilize the resources and facilities at UNU-WIDER for their Ph.D. dissertation or thesis research on developing economies, and to work with our researchers in areas of mutual interest.

Visiting Ph.D. fellows typically spend three consecutive months at UNU-WIDER before returning to their home institution. During their time in Helsinki, fellows prepare one or more research papers and present a seminar on their research findings. They may also have the opportunity to publish their research in the WIDER Working Paper Series.
