CEDLA Prince Bernhard Research Scholarships in Netherlands, 2019

Applications are invited for Prince Bernhard Scholarships for Researchers from Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, or Latin America for the year 2018. The programme has also been financially supported by the University of Utrecht and CEDLA.

The scholarships aim to support innovative research carried out in the fields of economic, political, or cultural relations between the Netherlands/Europe and Latin America.

Since its creation in 1964, the Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation (CEDLA), hosted by the University of Amsterdam, has promoted Latin American Studies in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond. This is done by conducting and stimulating relevant and original research on developments in Latin America and distributing the results of this research via academic education and publications. CEDLA’s library is considered Europe’s second largest collection of material on Latin America. Since July 2015, CEDLA is part of the Faculty of the Humanities of the University of Amsterdam.
