Doctoral Fellowships in European History

The European University Institute in Fiesole, Italy, is offering fully funded doctoral fellowships for students wishing to pursue Ph.D. studies in European history.

The European University Institute (EUI) is located on a majestic hill overlooking Firenze (Florence), Italy, an inspiring historic setting for studying medieval, Renaissance, and early modern history. The EUI is a major higher education institution of the European Union, with professors, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students from all EU member states.

I held a Jean Monnet Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute after completing my Ph.D. dissertation and I can highly recommend the History program at the EUI.

Here is the European University Institute’s announcement:

The call for applications for the European University Institute fully-funded four-year  Ph.D. programme will be launched on 1 November 2020. The EUI Department of History and Civilization offers exceptional opportunities to study global connections within early modern and modern European history.
