The Migriricerca II open call has been published online; it guarantees a training scholarship to do social research to young people with a migrant background. The application deadline is June 30, 2022.

The open call for Migriresearch II, sponsored by FIERI,  offers young people with a migrant background a scholarship to do social research. This is the second year that the scholarship is being offered. It is financially sponsored by Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo , and is based on the premise that while migration dynamics are a strong focus in the social sciences, the research being done on the phenomena, and the related social integration and segregation processes, is almost totally produced by native researchers devoid of any migratory experience either at the family and/or individual level. This reality is also the case in Italy, where even though migration has been a decisive element of its national demography, young migrants or those with a migrant background are underrepresented in cultural professions, especially in the academic universe. To widen their representation is not only a question of social justice but will have an impact on the quality of the research.

You have until June 30, 2022, to apply for the scholarship.

  • Be born abroad, migrated to Italy or have a migrant background.
  • Be under 30 years of age (not yet finished at the time of application,) or less than 32 (not yet finished at the time of application,) if the candidate has already gotten a PhD
  • Have finished, in Italy or abroad, a post-graduate degree in one of the following areas: Area 11 – Historical, Philosophical, Pedagogical and Psychological Sciences; Area 12 – Juridical Science; Area 13 – Economics and Statistics; Area 14 – Political and Social Sciences.
Scholarship Information

The scholarship will start on September 1, 2022, and will end on August 31, 2023. The scholarship is worth a nontaxable €16,800.00, paid out over a 12-month period via a coordinated contractual relationship.
