In memory of its Honorary President Gianfranco Martini, ALDA funds an annual scholarship. University students and researchers with a research proposal on the topics of local democracy, engagement of civil society and/or interethnic dialogue can apply. The aim is to receive high-quality academic research and analysis for ALDA’s fields of activity in order to develop further strategies on these topics.

The applications will be selected on the following criteria:

  • Originality and innovation of the proposal
  • Timeliness and relevance of the research
  • Clear definition and formulation of the research project’s objectives and how it will be implemented
  • Relevance for ALDA’s work regarding local democracy, civil society engagement and interethnic dialogue
  • Research that builds a link between theory and practice.

The selection process will be made by an evaluation committee nominated by ALDA’s governing board and the successful candidate will be announced at our annual General Assembly, which will take place in May 2016 in Paris.

For additional information about how to apply, who is eligible, the documents required and the criteria for projects selection, please visit the application document.
