· Candidates for doctoral scholarships and short post-doctoral stays will have to choose as their destination center one of the forty-eight Spanish universities that, to date, have signed an agreement with Fundación Carolina. The list of these universities is attached; in sixteen cases the conditions of the agreement are improved in relation to the monthly contribution to the doctoral fellow, given that the Spanish university participates in the co-financing of the stay, with € 400 per month, with accommodation in a university residence. This improvement in the distribution of the € 1,200 per month does NOT apply to short-stay scholarships.
