Senior and Junior Fellowships
This program supports Research Fellowship at CEU lasting from one to six
months. The program is designed to increase exchange between scholars of the
region and Central European University, and also to promote original
research which can be of practical benefit to a particular country or
region. The outcome of a Fellowship at CEU should be either published
original work in a particular Social Science or Humanities discipline, or
the provision of research that will be of practical relevance and use to
contemporary problems. Whilst at CEU, Fellows will present one Lecture to
their host Department or Programme and one Public Lecture for the broader
If appropriate, Fellows can also be given the opportunity to teach up to two
hours per week to CEU students. Fellows are required to be in residence at
CEU for the duration of their Fellowship.
The Fellowship program is divided into two categories: Junior and Senior.
Both types of Fellowship receive travel costs to/from Budapest or Warsaw (at
the rate), accommodation during the period of the Fellowship, and a monthly
stipend. For 2002, Junior Fellows will receive $750 per month stipend, and
Senior Fellows will receive $1500 per month.
Application Forms with Criteria for Applicants in both categories are
available from the SEP Office, National Soros Foundation Offices and
electronically (see Application Forms below). Applications for a Fellowship
can be received and considered at almost anytime during the year. CEU will
not accept Fellows during August or the Christmas period due to the limited
availability of professors and access to research materials during vacation.
Applications are evaluated by the relevant CEU department and then by the
External Programmes Committee of CEU. This Committee meets once a month
(except during the Summer Vacation).

Fellowships Program and can host fellows. Therefore, we may accept requests
or applications in the following discipline areas:
