Comèl Travel Grant

The travel grant is meant to support young scholars willing to partake in the events organised at the Domus Comeliana. It is named after Marcello Comèl (1902-1996), founder of the Institutio Santoriana Fondazione Comel, a versatile polyglot and an early supporter of the wider integration of the European research community.

The Scheme at Glance

The scheme is accessible throughout the year via an application process.

The travel grant is open to Bachelor’s and Master’s Students including PhDs who have not yet discussed their viva.

All CSMBR events are eligible, with the only exception of Summer Schools, which are covered by the Santorio Fellowship.

Conditions of the Grant

The grant is paid after the event for which the applicant has applied has taken place and is against actual expenditures.

Application Process

Applicants should send a cover letter (max. 300 words), CV (max. 2 pages) and a reference letter from their supervisor which shall be addressed to the Director of the CSMBR within the application deadline. Applicants must motivate their interest in the event supported by the travel grant against current or future research projects.
