I am a second year PhD student in computer science, in Europe. For a number of reasons, when beginning the PhD I decided to keep on with my previous job, doing an unfunded part-time PhD.
Now, I have decided that I would like to continue with academic career, and I would like to spend a part of my third year in a foreign university, ideally in the US.
The issue is that I can not do this with my own money (that I don't have :) ), as to do this I would have to leave my job, for sure. So, currently I don't have any funding.
So my question: there exist some kind of funding to cover this kind of research periods abroad? And also, where to look? My own university, the European union or the future hosting institution?
