ROSE School Fellowships

The European School of Advanced Studies in Reduction of Seismic Risk (ROSE) was founded in 2000 with the aim of providing higher-level education in the field of earthquake engineering. In December 2001, the European Commission designed the ROSE School as a Marie Curie Training Site, providing funds to finance postgraduate scholarships with a duration of three to twelve months. The fellowships, with a value of 1,200 euros per month, may be awarded to Ph.D. students currently undertaking research work on topics related to earthquake engineering and who wish to spend a relatively short period of time at the ROSE School attending courses or carrying out research work under the supervision of one of the faculty members. Application criteria and instructions on how to submit an application can be found at http://www.roseschool.it/site-pages/show/id/70.
