CEU Senior and Junior Visiting Research Fellowships, Budapest

The program is designed to increase exchange between scholars of the region and Central European University, and to promote original research, which can be of practical benefit to a particular country or region. The Visiting Research Fellowship Program is applicable to citizens of countries in Central and Eastern Europe (except EU member states), the former Soviet Union, or of Mongolia holding a Ph. D. or equivalent, who are affiliated with a teaching or research institution within the above said countries.

The program supports two types of Research Fellows. Senior Visiting Research Fellows hold a full professorship, and are academics of established (preferably national) standing within their discipline. Junior Visiting Research Fellows are academics who have made a contribution to their discipline through publications, conference presentations, or other academic forums. Fellows are supported for a period of from one to six months, depending upon the type of research being undertaken. Both types of Fellowship cover travel costs to/from Budapest, accommodation during the period of the Fellowship, and a monthly stipend. Junior Fellows will receive $750 per month stipend, and Senior Fellows - $1500 per month.

The deadline for receiving the complete application package for the Senior and Junior Visiting Research Fellowship Program during the Academic Year 2006-2007 is May 15, 2006.
