Forwarded from CLIMLIST... INTERNATIONAL PHD PROGRAM FELLOWSHIPS BSC_LA CAIXA_SEVERO OCHOA (Call 2015) Since 1982, the "la Caixa" Foundation has offered several fellowship programmes aimed at allowing students to undertake postgraduate studies in Spain and abroad. Over the years, thousands of students have advanced their training thanks to "la Caixa" Foundation fellowship. In 2008, the "la Caixa" Foundation launched a new programme addressed to national and international students. As part of this programme, each year fellowships are awarded to students who wish to complete work toward their doctoral degrees. Under a collaborative Framework Agreement, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the "la Caixa" Foundation continue the fellowship programme with a 3rd call. This programme aims to help the recruitment of talented students from across the world by doing their doctoral thesis work in one of the accredited "Severo Ochoa" centers of excellence. The objective of this joint activity is to boost the research capacity of the best research institutions in Spain.
