The Lauterpacht Centre for International Law is pleased to announce the opening of a competition for two scholarships, funded by the Embassy of the Repoublic of Poland in London. The scholarships have been named after the Polish Judge and international lawyer, Bohdan Winiarski. The scholarships are primarily aimed at younger Polish scholars in the early years of their career and are intended to cover a research visit at the Lauterpacht Centre in 2014.
Each scholarship is worth £3000 (GBP) and is intended to cover the cost of bench fees, accommodation, maintenance and travel incurred during an 8-12 week research visit at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. Any additional costs incurred are the responsibility of the candidate. Scholarships must be used during the 2014 calendar year.
Candidates must comply with the following:
- have Polish citizenship;
- be fluent in Polish and English;
- be a graduate of a Polish university (candidates should already hold a degree, applications from students will not be accepted);
- be associated on a permanent basis with a Polish university or another institution in Poland dealing with international law;
- specify a project on some aspect of international law (not including European law) on which they will work while resident at the Lauterpacht Centre. Preferably, the project should be published as a result of the visit;
- produce a report of their work in English at the end of the scholarship period.
Applications should consist of the following documents:
- the candidate's CV (curriculum vitae);
- a sufficiently detailed (2-4 page) description of the project they intend to work on whilst at the Centre;
- two letters of reference.
All documents should be provided in English, except for the letters of reference, which may be in Polish or English. The letters of reference should be sent by post, preferably directly by the referees (scanned copies may be sent earlier by email, with the originals following by post). Both the application and the references must be received by the deadline. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
DEADLINE: 9 SEPTEMBER 2013
The deadline for applications, including the letters of reference, is 9 September 2013. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Receipt of applications will be acknowledged if sent by email but only successful candidates will be contacted.
Applications will be reviewed by a committee appointed by the Director of the Lauterpacht Centre. Successful candidates must use their scholarships in 2014.
