In case the candidate does not hold the PhD at the deadline of submission
of the application, the faculty advisor should send a statement of
assurance that the PhD will be completed by July 31, 2011.
In the evaluation of applications, the scholarly strength of the candidate,
as well as the feasibility of the proposed research and its impact upon the
applicant's career and potential for future impact on psycholinguistics in
Italy, will be considered.
Applicants who plan to remain in their current institution should provide

March and the remaining US $11,000 in October upon receiving a report of
the activities carried out. This report will be approved and signed by the
sponsor of the host Institution and sent to the Fondazione. Should the
fellowship holder decide to stop working on the project before the agreed
period, or to take up a paid position, the amount of the award paid will be
reduced proportionally (about US $3,100 per month). In due time the winner
of the fellowship must send info about their IBAN and bank account, about
having obtained a valid visa (if required) for the intended period, and
about arrival and departure dates and locations.
The Fondazione expects the fellowship holder to acknowledge the Fondazione
Marica De Vincenzi onlus in presentations at conferences during the year
they are financially supported by the Fondazione, as well as in papers
stemming from the research activity carried out in this period. Also, the
fellows’ scientific involvement in the Fondazione’s research and training
will be greatly appreciated.
Applications should be submitted to: borsedistudiofondazionedevincenzi.org.
Receipt of all submitted material will be acknowledged by email.
