MESR nationwide and worldwide mobility grant 2023 – PhD college students and postdocs

National and international mobility grants 2023

Due January 4, 2023

Thanks to the renewed support from the MESR for the second year in a row, the INHA 2023 awards national and international mobility grants to young researchers for art history projects. The help can go up to 1000 Euro for mobility in metropolitan France, 3000 euros (Europe and DROM) and 5000 Euro (outside Europe) in 2023.

The files are evaluated according to the overall methodology of the research project, the inclusion of the planned trip in this project and the innovative character of the research object. A research project and a detailed work program are therefore expected, clearly justifying the trip and specifying the sources to be studied or the places to be visited. Postdocs must also state the goal pursued with the submitted research project (publication, preparation of a postdoc research project, exhibition, etc.).

Budgets must be correctly valued (even if they exceed the maximum allowed in the grant) and include all necessary expenditure items and at least Travel, accommodation and three meals a day.

In the case of research projects within the framework of funding projects (e.g. ANR or postdoc contracts), applicants must state to what extent their own research is funded or not. Furthermore, in the case of collective projects carried out by heritage institutions or research laboratories, the INHA grant cannot be the only financial support awarded to the candidate. Institutions and laboratories are also expected to contribute to the business travel expenses that are the subject of an application to INHA. In this case, the candidate’s cover letter must indicate the contribution of cultural heritage institutions or research laboratories.

Applications for stays abroad as part of co-supervised theses (several months at the co-supervised university) are not eligible for this mobility grant to promote targeted research in a relatively tight time frame. This scholarship is also not intended to support writing stays or to finance the purchase of equipment (cameras, printers, etc.).

Application requirements

Matriculation for a doctorate at a higher education institution in the European Union or a doctorate at a higher education institution in the European Union at the time of the application deadline less than three years ago (doctoral degree received between January 4, 2020 and January 4, 2023).

Composition of the application documents

  • a letter of motivation, addressed to the head of the study and research department at INHA,
  • a CV,
  • a detailed description of the mobility project with timetable,
  • a letter of support from the research director or a scientific personality,
  • a preliminary budget.

Only applications submitted online on the platform will be considered.
