EDIC Calls for Nominations & Deadlines

EDIC Homepage EDIC Laureates

Below are links to various prestigious external PhD fellowship and award programs, relevant to EDIC. In some cases (where an EDIC deadline is indicated), the number of nominations may be limited, so submission to the EDIC program committee as a first step is required.

With the exception of the EPFL Research Awards, EDIC sends out the calls, details and reminders to all EDIC thesis directors prior to the deadlines indicated.

Instructions for the Doctoral Thesis Distinction are available here.  For the 2020 EDIC award cycle, nominated dissertations must have been defended publically between September 1, 2019 and August 31, 2020.
