Fellowship Programme for 2010/11 for Young Scholars from Central and Eastern Europe

funded by the Volkswagen Foundation

Deadline for Applications: 29 November 2010

Collegium Budapest Institute for Advanced Study has been awarded a grant from the Volkswagen Foundation for a Fellowship Programme for young scholars from Central and Eastern Europe. The programme, entitled “Fresh perspectives on the new European democracies” (NewDem) will be conducted by Collegium Budapest in cooperation with Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin.

As its title suggests, the fellowship programme is targeted at young researchers in the social sciences and the humanities from Central and Eastern Europe. Its thematic focus is on improving understanding of key challenges and opportunities in the CEE region, through fresh perspectives and original insights of young scholars. It offers 5-month residencies for excellent scholars and provides a highly stimulating environment for a multidisciplinary and international group of fellows thereby promoting the exchange of ideas among potential future academic leaders in the CEE region.

The Fellows are expected to work on their own projects and also to take part in the scholarly community of the Collegium. At the end of their Fellowship, each Fellow is expected to prepare a research paper, reflecting the results of his/her work over the duration of the Fellowship.

The Call for application for the first fellowship period, March-July 2011, has just been published on the website of Collegium Budapest (http://www.colbud.hu/current/vw/). In order to complete the very thorough evaluation process in good time, the deadline for receipt of applications for this first Call is rather tight – 29 November 2010. As indicated on the website’s Call information, further Call(s) are foreseen, in relation to the Academic Year 2011/2012.
