Call for applications for the 2021 Winter Courses:
A merit-based scholarship programme allows approximately 20% of promising attendees (students, lawyers or diplomats) of the Academy’s Summer and Winter Courses, to benefit from financial support. The scholarships are funded by public and private bodies, including the Academy, as well as distinguished individuals from various countries. The Secretary-General selects the scholarship recipients on behalf of the Curatorium of the Academy.
Scholarships cover the registration fees as well as the travel expenses to and from The Hague (up to a certain maximum depending on the region from where one travels). Furthermore, scholarship beneficiaries receive a sum of €550,-. at the start of the courses, which can be used to pay for accommodation. This means that in principle scholarship beneficiaries will only have to budget to pay for their daily expenses in The Hague themselves as the rest is taken care of. Travel expenses will be reimbursed at the end of the courses upon presentation of train (2nd class) or plane tickets (Economy class) by direct bank transfer, either by the relevant donor or by the Academy.
The maximum reimbursements per region traveled from are as follows:
Europe: € 250,-.
Maghreb, Middle East, Russia & Central Asia: € 350,-.
South Asia: € 800,-.
North America: € 700,-.
Far East & Sub-Saharan Africa: € 800,-.
Central and South America, Oceania & Pacific Islands: € 1000,-.
The conditions of admission for a scholarship are the same as for full-fee applicants.
Interested candidates can apply by filling out the scholarship registration form on our website before the deadline of July 31st 2020 at 00:00 hrs (GMT+1).
