Each year, five JURE members will be given the opportunity to benefit from an international mentoring visit for a period of 2-4 weeks.  The mentor, who is an EARLI member and an experienced scholar in his/her respective field, can provide guidance and support to the doctoral student in a variety of themes. This grant is not intended to finance regular PhD-project activities.
