CEU Professioral and CEU Visiting Research Fellowships


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. CEU Professioral Visiting Research Fellows hold a full professorship, and are academics of established (preferably national) standing within their discipline. CEU 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. CEU Fellows will receive $750 per month stipend, and CEU Professioral Fellows - $1500 per month.

Program Requirements

Whilst at CEU, Fellows will present one Public Lecture to their host Department and the broader CEU community. Within one month of completion of the Fellowship, Fellows are required to submit to the Special Projects Office of CEU a brief paper in English, describing the results of their research activities at CEU. Within one year of completion of the Fellowship, Fellows are required to submit to the Special Projects Office a publication or an article prepared for publication in English, German, or French based on their original research at CEU. The resulting publication should state that this research is the outcome of a Visiting Research Fellowship at CEU. Fellows are required to be in residence at CEU for the duration of their Fellowship and are accommodated in CEU's Residence and Conference Center.

Application Procedure

Application Forms with Criteria for Applicants in both categories are available from the SPO Office, National Soros Foundation Offices and electronically (see Application Forms below). CEU does not accept Fellows during August or the Christmas period due to the limited availability of professors and access to research materials during vacation. Please note: those who are or who plan to be involved in projects, research, teaching, or other activities sponsored or co-sponsored by the Soros Foundation or OSI during the proposed period of the Visiting Research Fellowship are not eligible to participate in the program.

Beside the completed application form applicants are required to send their CV, two reference letters and a research proposal (8-10 pages).

Applications are evaluated by the relevant CEU Department or Center and CEU's Special Projects Office. Therefore, we accept applications in the following discipline areas:
