Fully Funded UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) is accepting applications for the CONFINTEA Research Scholarships 2018. In September 2018, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) will offer at least three CONFINTEA Research Scholarships for a period of one month each to researchers from UNESCO Member States and/or Associate Member States. Prospective scholars will be able to benefit from using UIL’s knowledge base and resources for their research in the area of lifelong learning with a focus on adult and continuing education, literacy, and non-formal basic education.
UIL will provide each scholar with a workstation and access to the considerable resources of its unique library. In addition, scholars will have a chance to exchange knowledge with other scholars, UIL staff and its external partners. They will work under the supervision of a UIL specialist, but they should also be prepared to work on their own initiative. Scholars are expected to present the research they have undertaken at UIL. Furthermore, in the months following completion of their scholarship, they must report on follow-up activities and the results of their research. Upon completion of their scholarship, participants will be eligible to join UIL’s Alumni Network.
UIL will arrange and pay for health insurance, accommodation close to the Institute, and a return economy ticket to Hamburg, Germany, where the Institute is based.
Additionally, scholars will receive a lump sum of €500 contributing to other costs incurred before, during and after their research stay at UIL (such as visa costs, transport, and daily subsistence).
Open to researchers and education professionals from UNESCO Member States and/or Associate Member States
UIL particularly welcomes applicants from the Global South.
Researchers should work in the area of lifelong learning with a focus on adult education and continuing education, literacy and non-formal basic education.
Participants are selected on the basis of their potential to produce:
