CEU/HESP Visiting Fellowship

Central European University invites applications for two Visiting Fellowship Programs for the academic year 2017-18. The fellowship programs are supported by the Higher Education Support Program (HESP) of the Open Society Foundations.

The Faculty Development Fellowship is offered to academics employed in full-time teaching positions in one of the eligible institutions who wish to spend one term at CEU conducting research that will help them enhance their courses and/or advance towards a doctoral degree. Eligible institutions are: American University-Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan); Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences (Palestine), and any higher education institution in Myanmar. Depending on their needs and interests, applicants can choose from two tracks: course development or research development. After the initial three-month fellowship interested fellows can re-apply for the second track in one of the following application cycles. Re-applications will be considered on a competitive basis. The program will include a training/workshop component, course design for the course development track and research design for the research development track. Fellows can be hosted by any CEU department, school or research center.  Fellows are supported for a period of three months (one term at CEU). Fellowship award covers travel costs to/from Budapest, accommodations at the CEU residence centre and a monthly stipend of 1,400 USD per month.

The Research Excellence Fellowship is offered to academics employed in higher education institutions and/or academic research institutions who wish to spend one or two terms at CEU conducting original research that will lead to a groundbreaking publication in an international peer-reviewed journal. The fellows can be hosted by any CEU department, school or research center. Fellows are supported for a period of three or six months (one or two consecutive terms at CEU). Fellowship award covers travel costs to/from Budapest, accommodations at the CEU residence and a monthly stipend of 1,800 USD per month.

Applications for both programs for the academic year 2017/18 must be submitted by the deadline of 15 February 2017.
