The fellowships are offered under the EU4Belarus – SALT (Support for Advanced Learning and Training)‘ project, which is part of the EU’s broader ‘Solidarity with the people of Belarus’ programme.
Fellowships are expected to start from 1 April 2023 and be completed by 30 June 2025. The planned duration of an action is a minimum of three months but may not exceed ten months.
