University of Heidelberg Research Grants
Heidelberg has developed a joint initiative to be able to offer 4 research grants at the Ibero-American Studies Centre (IAZ). These grants are designed for doctorate students in Linguistics, Translation, and Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese Literature, so that they may continue to work on their research theses at IAZ. University stays will be for 1 to 3 months, with grants amounting to 1,000 euros per month, and contributions will also be made towards travel expenses (1,000 euros for Latin America and 400 euros for Spain and Portugal).
