Since 1998, the University of Pavia and the Institute for University Studies (EDiSU) have offered about ten scholarships yearly for a four to ten week stay in Pavia, during which time the scholars carry out research with professors in the department that hosts them and often hold seminars.

As of 2017, about 200 scholarships had been awarded to academics from more than 54 different countries to carry out research in Pavia.

CICOPS Scholarships are now being accepted for 2018. Academics and other researchers from Developing Countries who wish to carry out research in collaboration with a professor at the University of Pavia are welcome to apply. Applicants must have the support of a collaborator at the University of Pavia who invites them with a formal invitation letter (applications without invitation letter won't be taken into consideration).

Applicants must have at least two years of either teaching experience or activity in international organizations and institutions.
CICOPS Scholarships are foreseen for research collaboration in the short period (from 4 to 12 weeks) in order to encourage the mobility of researcher from Developing Countries. Applicants enrolled in a Doctoral or Postgraduate Course at an Italian University are not eligible to apply.
