It covers study programmes both with a general focus as well as those specializing in diplomacy, politics, law, economics, business and trade, development and cooperation, or human rights, as long as they are dealt with from an international perspective.
Diplocat offers a maximum of six grants per year.
Each grant is of €25,000 (pre-tax).
