Catholic University of Milan, Italy
The Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore offers four merit-based scholarships (Euro 13638,47 gross income per year) for a 3-year Program of Doctoral Studies in Economics.
PhD Scholarships in Economics
The first year of the PhD Program is devoted mainly to advanced course work in Mathematics for economics, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and a number of frontier state-of-the-art research topics. Full time research is pursued over the following two (or exceptionally three) years, during which each student must write his or her thesis. Students are encouraged and financially supported to carry out part of their studies at leading foreign universities in order to allow them to exchange and compare ideas on a broader scale.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: To apply, please read the Call for Pre-Applications downloadable at http://www.unicatt.it/phdeconomics where the procedure is described. It consists of two stages, a pre-application and an official application. The purpose of the Pre-Application stage is to give candidates a preview as to whether their official Application will have a chance to be successful. The pre-application is recommended but not necessary while the official application is. To participate in the pre-application stage, for which there is no fee, your application must be received by May 15th. The official application will take place in the second half of July or the first half of August. (The precise date will be available on the Program's website later.)
