    ICon Grants 2024 for USZ staff

    The InterContinental Academic Exchange Programme (ICon) finds its origin in longlasting collaboration links between the SGroup network and its members, and institutions located in strategic regions linked to the Think Tank Academy. 

    As part of this mobility programme, the academic and administrative staff of the University of Szczecin can apply for a SGroup scholarship for a short mobility period in a partner institution of their choice outside Europe. This year, 9 grants are available, and distributed as follows:

    • 3 grants for Latin America;
    • 3 grants for China;
    • 3 grants for Africa;

    The grant is paid out through reimbursement to the selected candidates after the mobility period against presentation of their boarding passes and relevant invoices/proof of payment of up to 3 000 EUR and after approval of their end-of-mobility report by the SGroup ICon Selection Committee.

    Candidates interested in the programme should send to international@usz.edu.pl by 20 March 2024 following documents:

    • CV, short version (maximum 2 pages);
    • Motivation Letter including the objectives, impact and possible benefits of the proposed work programme both for the candidate and the involved institutions;
    • Statement of the home institution with a brief description of the professional activity of the applicant signed by the immediate superior;
    • letters of support from the host institution.

    Please, read icon-programme-guide-2024 the programme guide carefully before applying.

    Internal evaluation at the University of Szczecin will be carried out, in case if more application by USZ staff will be filed. In case of any questions, please write to international@usz.edu.pl
