Who can apply and what does it cost?

Applicants are doctoral and advanced research students who primarily come from or study in EERA‘s member countries. Their thesis must relate to educational research. The focus of the summer school is on the phase of developing the research project. This means that the topic has been identified, the theoretical background is being elaborated and qualitative/mixed design appears to be appropriate. Preferably the participant should be a Ph.D. student in the first or second year of his/her studies in order to most benefit from the summer school. In some cases, people who already have their PhD can attend the summer school - they should explain in their application how the the summer school would support them in their further research.   Your CV and a letter of endorsement from a current or former supervisor or other senior staff member must be uploaded during the application process in order to be considered for summer school participation.

The fee for the Summer School 2018 is 250 € (students from High GDP countries) or 130 € (students from Low GDP countries).
