Research Grants at the University of Oviedo

The University of Oviedo is committed to research excellence and boasts its own research funding scheme that supplements other grants programmes and national and regional funding schemes.

The University of Oviedo programme providing support to its scientists covers different aspects of research and works to ensure that promising young researchers have the opportunity to carry out their projects through the funding of Master's programmes, the preparation of PhD theses and the start-up of new research projects.

The University of Oviedo has its own grants programme for its researchers providing backing for young talent and support in the search for new international projects and contact with business.

University of Oviedo grants also provide support to research groups to prepare their proposals for new European projects, promote contact with business and publish their research findings.

Internationalization and attracting talent from outside our borders are other established strategic priorities. The following are some of the main lines of action of the University's own funding programme:

  • Scholarships to retain young talent to study for a Master's degree
  • Grants for preparing PhD Theses
  • Holding of University of Oviedo PhD Meetings
  • Grants for temporary stays by excellent researchers
