Call directed at
 Undergraduate and graduate students
 PhD students and candidates
 Everyone with a genuine interest in cultural anthropology
 Previous participants of the project

Selection is not based on previous academic merit or project complexity. We aim for enthusiasm, dedication and creativity. In past years, students who were not enrolled in an anthropology program also received scholarships for the program.

Selection Procedure
In the first phase, candidates are invited to propose two or more creative research concepts that can be built upon through fieldwork performed during one session of the summer school on Gozo (Malta). For the second phase, the scholarship review board will select 15 to 20 candidates from these submissions to work out a more detailed research plan within a deadline of two months. These final proposals will be ranked and scholarships will be divided according to this ranking. The top ranked proposals will be granted a full scholarship, while others will receive a partial scholarship. None of the scholarships include airfare to or from Malta.

How can I apply for this initial selection?
 Send us two or more research concepts
 150-250 words per research concept
 Submitting can only be done through this online form
 The deadline for submissions (first stage) is January 5th, 2020

Please note that the number of students accepted in the program is limited. Scholarships will be granted only after the completion of the selection procedure, while registration is open to non-scholarship participants. In case you wish to join the project even if you do not receive a scholarship, we advise to register through the regular procedure as early as possible since non-scholarship slots are usually filled by the end of December.
