Visiting Scholars

The EUROSUD Visiting Academic Scholarships provide mobility funding to scholars and/or guest lecturers to undertake a visit of up to three days at one of the five EUROSUD consortium institutions – The University of Glasgow (UK), The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece), The Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain), LUISS Guido Carli (Italy) or Aix-Marseille University (France). 

EUROSUD is an international consortium of universities funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme to deliver an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) in South European Studies. The consortium is coordinated by the University of Glasgow. For more information please see our website pages.

Both scholars from degree-awarding and associate partners of the EUROSUD consortium, as well as scholars from an organisation outside the consortium are eligible to apply.
