The call for applications for the next academic year (2020/2021) is organised in two rounds of application. The first round closed on the 3rd of April, 2020.

The second round of applications was extended to the 9th of June, due to the pandemic and the difficulties that some candidates are facing to gather the needed documents. Shortlisted candidates in this round will receive an answer by the 20th of June, 2020.
