Special application call for 4 scholarships granted to the inter-university doctoral programme in History.



PIUDHIST is an inter-university doctoral programme in which History is viewed from an inter-disciplinary point of view. Despite its unique character, History is regarded here as a field of knowledge which cannot do without a permanent cross fertilization with other areas in the humanities and the social sciences. In our vision, this is also why we consider apposite to attach, as a subtitle for this programme, the words “change and continuity in a global world”.

It takes place in Lisbon, Portugal, jointly organized by the University of Lisbon, University of Évora, Portuguese Catholic University and ISCTE - Lisbon University Institute.

Courses and seminars run in Portuguese and English. Enrolled students receive monitoring assistance by tutors and supervisors.

At the moment, there is a special application call for 4 scholarships granted by FCT, the Portuguese Governmental Agency for Science and Technology.
