Visegrad Scholarship at the Open Society Archives

CAS 28/06/2010

For a better and deeper understanding of the interdependent recent history of (the center of) Europe, the International Visegrad Fund offers ten research fellowship grants annually in the Open Society Archives at Central European University, Budapest on a competitive basis to support scholars who wish to conduct research in the holdings of OSA, and whose current research projects are relevant to the holdings and the given research priorities of the Fund and OSA. The grants of 2.000 euro are designed to provide access to the archives for scholars, artists, and journalists, and to cover travel to and from Budapest, a modest subsistence, and accommodation for a maximum research period of two months.

Fellows are free to work on the project of their choice; however, in the academic year of 2010-2011, applicants with one of the following topics might enjoy advantage over other applicants:

1. Representations and interpretations of World War II and/or subsequent wars in Europe;

2. The complicated relationship between historiography/history writing and propaganda.

Successful candidates are expected to work on their projects, give a presentation at the Central European University within the framework of the Visegrad Fund Fellow Lecture Series, and produce a final grant report (in text or in audio-visual format) in English, which will be posted on the OSA/Visegrad Fund website.

Applicants, preferably but not exclusively, from a V4 country, may be researchers, students after their first degree carrying out research, or artists, journalists, academics, or others who have already started their project that is relevant for the holdings at OSA.

Please submit the following to OSA:

1. Application letter in English (should specify expected period of stay and preferred dates).

2. Research description/plan in English(about 800 words; should indicate relationship between the current research topic, the chosen collection in the OSA holdings and your research, the intended use of text based or audio-visual research results, etc.)

3. Curriculum Vitae (C.V.)

4. Names of two referees with contact address.

The Application letter, C.V., and Research description/plan and Referees’ contact information can be sent by email to Katalin Gádoros ( [email protected]). (Subject: Visegrad Scholarship)

There are no deadlines in the research fellowship grant program. Applications are considered as they are received by the Selection Committee, which normally meets four times a year. Final notification is usually within three months of the date of submission. Please note that the deadline for the scholarship for the first period between September and December 2010 is on July 15! The Council of Ambassadors will meet by the end of July and make final decision.
