Universities in the Coimbra Group provide short-term visits (usually 1 to 3 months) to young African scholars from Sub-Saharan African higher education institutions. The primary goal of this fellowship program is to enable students to do research at their local university while also assisting them in establishing academic and scientific ties outside Europe.

The scholarships are funded by the Coimbra Group member universities that participate in this initiative, with the Coimbra Group Office in responsibility of application administration.

This scholarship program will be held at the following Coimbra Group universities in 2023:
• Barcelona University (Spain) • Coimbra University (Portugal) • Cologne University (Germany) • Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) • Granada University (Spain)
