OSUN Graduate Mobility Program


The Open Society University Network (OSUN) Mobility Programs aim to foster new pathways between and among OSUN members, particularly with those outside of North America and Europe.

The Graduate Mobility Program is designed to improve access to mobility for graduate students who are normally excluded from or have very limited access to international mobility.
Within the OSUN Graduate Mobility Program opportunities are provided for graduate students enrolled in an OSUN member institution to undertake a study or research period abroad at another OSUN member institution. The graduate mobility opportunities will include both the tuition exchange for self-funded students and needs-based mobility support grants for disadvantaged students. 

In the selection of grant recepients the relevance of their proposed studies / reseach to OSUN themes will be taken into consideration.


Travel and visa expenses, mandatory insurance, accommodations and living stipend for the duration of the research / study period can be covered.


During the current pilot phase of this program graduate students (Masters and Doctoral level) enrolled at the following institutions can apply:

  • Al-Quds University / Al-Quds Bard College, Jerusalem, Palestine 

  • American University in Bulgaria, Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria 

  • American University of Central Asia, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan 

  • Bard College Annandale, NY, USA 

  • BRAC University, Dhaka, Bangladesh 

  • Central European University, Vienna, Austria & Budapest, Hungary 

  • Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia. 

  • University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa 


In the current pilot phase a call for short term research (one to four weeks) opportunities for the period from May - September 2022 will be announced in January. Another call for short term (summer/winter courses) study abroad is also scheduled for January/February.

A call for semester-long study / research mobility for the 2022-23 academic year will be announced in early March.


An information session for the upcoming call for short term research (one to four weeks) opportunities for the period from May - September 2022 is scheduled for January 27, 8:00 a.m. EST / 2:00 p.m. EST.
