Fellows have access to all CEU facilities, including seminar and conference space, computer services, and library resources. They also benefit from CEU’s vibrant international atmosphere, its strong ties in Hungary, and its location in culturally rich Budapest. CEU-IAS facilitates the fellows’ engagement with the CEU and Hungarian scholarly community by encouraging collaborative projects, organizing joint public lectures, establishing student mentorship programs, and related activities.


Qualifications, experience:
•    Fellowships are highly competitive and fellows are chosen through a rigorous selection process.  The Selection Committee will primarily consider the quality of the research proposal as well as the applicant’s proven track record or promise of scholarly productivity.
•    Fellows must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in the social sciences or humanities at the time of their application.
•    CEU graduates and employees are not eligible to apply for 6 years after the ending of their studies/contract.
