The Lauterpacht Centre for International Law is pleased to announce the opening of a competition for two scholarships funded by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The scholarships have been named after the Polish Judge and international lawyer, Bohdan Winiarski. Applications are open to PhD candidates, PhD holders and other academics who are nationals of:

1)    Visegrad Group States and Western Balkans States (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, as well as North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo) – one scholarship;

2)    Eastern Partnership States (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) – one scholarship.

Each scholarship has a value of £2,600 and is intended to offer support towards the covering of the costs of a research visit of 8 weeks at the Lauterpacht Centre in 2025 (such as travel, visa, accommodation, health and personal accident insurance, accommodation, maintenance, and the Centre Fee). Any expenses and costs incurred by the candidate in excess of the amount of the scholarship will be his or her responsibility.

The Lauterpacht Centre provides a hub for research in Cambridge for legal practitioners and academics from around the world. The Winiarski scholar will be welcomed as part of the community of visiting scholars at the Centre. While in Cambridge, visiting scholars have the opportunity to meet with other researchers in their field and are encouraged to participate fully in the activities of the Centre, including the Friday lectures and the work-in-progress seminars of the visiting fellows/scholars. Visiting scholars have automatic access to the Centre’s Library and access by application to the University Library and the Faculty of Law’s Squire Law Library.

The application deadline is Monday 26 August 2024
