Programme for Training and Research in Italian Laboratories (TRIL)



Criteria for TRIL Fellowships

Individuals wishing to be considered for a fellowship award must ensure that they meet all the following criteria:

  1. be a national of a developing country;
  2. be in possession of at least a university Master's Degree;
  3. be proficient in reading and writing English. Applicants may be requested to present an English proficiency certificate or a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) certificate;
  4. reside in a developing country (studying or working) at the time of selection.

Individuals from developed countries are not eligible to apply to the TRIL Programme.

Applications from young talented scientists who have already acquired a certain degree of research experience, with published papers to their credit, will be given preference. Priority attention will be given to female candidates and to applicants from least developed countries (LDCs). Applications from senior scientists are also welcome.

Former TRIL fellows may apply again, only if the total length of the previous award (plus any extensions) did not exceed 24 months. Should the previous award exceed this limit, an application will be considered after a 24-month break.

Individuals wishing to prolong their visit in Italy, which initiated from other organizations, institutes or laboratories, are discouraged from applying to the TRIL Programme.

Applications that do not meet all the eligible requirements will not be considered.
