The Doctorate Scholarships are aimed at promoting the obtaining of the academic degree of doctor among the professors of the universities of Latin America associated with the Carolina Foundation. In all cases, it is the university or educational institution in Latin America associated with the Foundation that must nominate the candidates before the Carolina Foundation.

A doctoral program can be carried out in those Spanish universities that have signed an agreement with Fundación Carolina and in all academic areas, except in the two cases in which the Spanish university limits the doctorates to which it is possible to choose (see section "Benefits of scholarship").

The scholarship will allow obtaining the academic degree of doctor.

These fellowships are based on a co-financing scheme, which is set out in bilateral educational co-operation agreements, mainly inspired by the principle of equal opportunities
