Check the ICon call for 2022

SGroup is proud to announce the new 2022 SGroup call for ICon (The InterContinental Academic Exchange Programme) of 2022. As part of this mobility programme, full-member universities of SGroup can apply for an SGroup scholarship to visit a partner institution of their choice outside Europe.

The grants can be used to help fund a staff mobility period outside Europe. 

ICon originates from long-lasting collaboration links between the SGroup network and its members with institutions located in strategic regions and is associated with the Think Tank Academy. Its aim is to promote, facilitate and/or strengthen collaboration between SGroup institutions and their overseas partners through a short mobility scheme for academic and administrative staff members.

14 grants are available for 2022, distributed as follows: 3 grants for Latin America; 3 grants for China; 2 grants for Africa; and 6 grants to conduct a mobility within an SGroup Associate Member university (1 for Shanghai International Studies University, China; 1 for Yerevan State Medical University, Armenia; 1 for the University of Los Andes, Colombia; 1 for La Trobe University, Australia; 1 for Stellenbosch University, South Africa; and 1 for the Ohio State University, USA). Applications have to be submitted through a member Liaison Officer. 

Applications can be submitted  from January to May, and will be judged with respect to eligibility and award criteria on a first-come first-served basis and until all grants have been distributed. The ICon Programme Guide 2022 will be sent via email to the SGroup Liaison Officers, containing the Application Form and all relevant information.
