CMI does not provide student scholarships and does not cover living- or accomodation costs. CMI offers office space with a computer in a reading room (shared by six) or in student offices (shared by two). All students are expected to participate in and contribute to the daily activities, seminars and discussions at the institute. Every student is assigned a contact person at CMI, and the opportunity to present and discuss papers and thesis chapters at monthly in-house seminars.

CMI always hosts 10 Master's students. Most study at the University of Bergen or the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration. Most CMI researchers are political scientists, anthropologists and economists, but CMI also welcomes students from other disciplines. To be a successful applicant you must be working with issues related to one of CMI's main research areas:

Democratisation and Human Rights
Peacebuilding
Global Economy and Development
Public Sector Reform
Poverty and Social Transformation
Aid Policy and Impact
Natural Resources
