Call for applications: 2022 Research grants
The French Centre for Economic, Law and Social Studies in Sudan (CEDEJ Khartoum) is seeking applications for the Research Grants from postgraduate students and researchers who conduct research in the social sciences and humanities in Sudan during the year 2022 (until 31st December).
These grants can be used to cover either transportation costs, stationery, printings, university registration fees in public universities, fieldwork cost or thesis finalization (language editing, typing, thesis printing). Two types of grants are offered (500,00 euros and 1000,00 euros) and will depend on the quality of the proposal and the budget submitted.
Applicants who currently do not have a scholarship with CEDEJ Khartoum have priority.
CEDEJ-Khartoum aims to foster research in general in Sudan and grants may be given to non-priority project proposals when considered well thought and relevant. However, the research must suits explicitly with at least one of our scientific themes of research:
– Governance, public policy, politics
– City, citizenship, migration and urban environments
– Environment, nature and resource management
– History of contemporary Sudan
Grants beneficiaries will be requested to provide a final report (5000 words). They might also be offered the opportunity to present the results of their work during a CEDEJ-Khartoum seminar.
Grants offered are not subject to taxes, and do not include open rights to social security. They are awarded as contributions towards actual research costs.
The scientific interest, feasibility and relevance of the project, the applicant’s ability to implement them, their innovative dimension, the suitability of the budget, co-funding sources, and the academic value (degree, scientific publication, data collection within a larger project…) will be criteria for evaluation and selection of application by a scientific committee.
The grant beneficiary will receive 70% of the grant at the signature of the grant contract. The beneficiary will receive the remaining payment when the final report is submitted to CEDEJ Khartoum and after validation by the scientific committee or when the thesis is submitted.
How to apply
Candidates having obtained a Master diploma can apply. There is no nationality restriction. Applications can be written in French or in English.
Interested applicants will send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following documents:
– a complete CV
– a motivation letter
– a research project (2 pages maximum)
– A detailed provisional budget (in SDG or in euros) showing other funding and their intended use
