CEU, Hungarian-American Fulbright Commission Establish New Teaching and Research Grant

October 8, 2013

CEU and the Hungarian-American Fulbright Commission signed an agreement Sept. 17 establishing the Fulbright-Central European University Teaching and Research Grant. Starting in Academic Year 2015-2016, CEU will host two U.S. academics per semester, one as a guest lecturer in a department and one as a researcher at the Institute for Advanced Study. The joint grants come with an apartment at Raoul Wallenberg House, a stipend, travel, insurance, and visa support benefits. Provost and Academic Pro-Rector Katalin Farkas worked with Fulbright Hungary Executive Director Karoly Jokay to design the program. The new grant will appear in Fulbright’s call for applications in February 2014. For more information, see visit http://www.cies.org.
