AMIDILA broad objective is to support the “inclusive development” in Latina America countries through mobility.

Inclusive development means promoting a development path that does not leave nobody at the fringes. It is therefore “including” in the development algorithm all the vulnerable groups of a society: minorities, indigenous groups, disabled, women, economically or socially disadvantaged people but also peripheries, remote areas of a country, rural areas, urban areas on a vulnerable situation (e.g. slums) and environment etc.

Inclusive development is an interdisciplinary area within the universities that involves either social sciences studies (public and economic policy, local governance, civil society participation, public services access and distribution such as health services and education) and natural sciences, engineering and technology studies (protection on environment, renewable energies, sustainable infrastructural development) requiring for a deep knowledge of those contexts that may foster the inclusion of a larger portion of the population into economic and social life.

“Inclusive development” will not be an exclusive topic so candidates willing to apply on a different topic are invited to apply for an AMIDILA scholarship and AMIDILA is looking forward to receive their applications.

Nevertheless a certain number of scholarship will be prioritized on the “Inclusive development” topic and assigned as follow:

Undergraduate and Master
to candidates focusing on the following priority themes and subjects:

  • ENVIRONMENT: Environment protection and sustainability, Renewable energy, Climate change, Infrastructures, Urban and rural development.
  • INCLUSION: Conflict prevention, Human rights, Empowerment and inclusion of indigenous people, women, disabled and minorities.
  • ACCESS:  Education, Health and sanitation, Justice.
  • THE STATE: Public administration, Good governance and strengthening of the State’s function, Local governance, Democracy and Civil responsibility.



PhD and Post doc
to candidates submitting a research proposal based on the topic of “INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT” developed through one of the priority themes and subjects listed above. PhD and Post doc candidates are invited to submit innovative research proposals and to produce relevant output during the mobility: papers, participation in conferences, publications, articles, etc.
A Paper contest may be organized in order to collect the most interesting outputs on “Inclusive Development” in an AMIDILA publication.
