The IHC will welcome six new doctoral students fully funded by the scholarships from the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), whose results were announced at the end of July.
Distributed across the History and Archaeology, Anthropology, and Arts panels, the new doctoral candidates will embark on very diverse projects, focusing on subjects such as the institutional memory of the Portuguese Armed Forces, the BBC Portuguese Service, the popular resistance to mining in Covas do Barroso, or the testimony of colonialism through photography.
We are pleased that the approval rate of applications was higher than that announced by FCT, approximately 50%. We congratulate those who succeeded and encourage those who, having not obtained a scholarship this year, can count on us to support a new application next year.
