JUMP Call 2020: Scholarships for Conference Visit and Journal Mentoring Available for Researchers from the Global South
In connection with the forthcoming EADI/ISS Conference 2020 on “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice”, to be held from 29 June to 2 July 2020 in the Hague, The Netherlands, PhD and early career researchers from the Global South are invited to apply for the JUMP Mentoring programme. Applicants must have submitted an abstract to either one of the Conference Panels (call open until 15 December) or the 17th ISS Development Dialogue (call open until 15 January).
The JUMP Mentoring Programme offers (young) Southern researchers the opportunity to work closely with an experienced scholar from their field of interest with the aim of preparing a paper that is (subject to the regular peer-review process) accepted for publication in the European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) or any other scientific journal. A one-day writing workshop at the EADI ISS Conference 2020 will kick off the programme. Mentees are paired with their mentors, introduced to the basics of writing a paper for academic high-ranking publishing and have opportunity to network. Conference fees, travel and accommodation expenses of the mentees are covered by the programme. The call is open until 20 January 2020. Further information is available here
