FLAD Fellowships for Short-Term Research in Portugal

  • Deadline: Mar 31, 2024
  • Portugal

Fellowships are now open for short-term research fellowships at Portuguese libraries and archives for U.S.-based researchers.

FLAD (the Luso-American Development Foundation) has just opened applications for short-term research fellowships in 2024 at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, Torre do Tombo, and other archives and libraries, with the aim of supporting the promotion of Portuguese language and culture in the U.S.

These programs are aimed at students, teachers, and researchers attached to educational or research institutions in the U.S., with a view to providing a productive stay in Portugal and access to research tools needed for the research projects of those selected.

The grants awarded by FLAD in partnership with DGLAB – Torre do Tombo and Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal are aimed at researching Portuguese history, culture and languages, and other related topics, based on the collections of both archives.

The FLAD Portuguese Archives Scholarship, created last year to reinforce the promotion and accessibility of face-to-face research, extends to archives and libraries throughout the country (mainland Portugal and the Islands.)

These grants, lasting up to 3 months, have a value of 1400 €/month, with an additional support of 750€ for travel-related expenses.
