FLAD: University of the Azores gets grant for exchange program with United States – Portugal

The Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) and the University of the Azores have signed a new protocol which provides funds from FLAD to promote travel between the University of the Azores and research institutions in the United States.

FLAD has committed to a grant of €100.000 to the initiative starting in 2015. Faculty, researchers, undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to participate in the program according to the ‘Principle Investigator’ (PI) guidelines.

Applicants from the Azores, seeking funding to study the United States, must apply directly through the University of the Azores. Applicants from United States institutions seeking funding to study in the Azores must apply through the FLAD website.

There will be two calls each year, and notifications will be sent out shortly after the call ends. The total amount available for this first call is €50,000 but no single request will receive more than €20,000. Deadline for applications is April 30, 2015. A second call will be announced toward the end of summer 2015.

Based in Lisbon, Portugal, the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) is a grant making organization dedicated to funding initiatives to promote scientific and cultural exchanges between Portugal and the United States.
