Call for Applications for two CEU Visiting Fellowship programs for the academic year 2017/18

December 13, 2016

The fellowships are supported by the Higher Education Support Program (HESP) of the Open Society Foundations and administered by the Yehuda Elkana Center for Higher Education.

The Faculty Development Fellowship is designed for academics employed in full-time teaching positions at eligible higher education institutions who wish to spend one term at CEU conducting research that will help them enhance their teaching and/or advance towards a doctoral degree. The eligible institutions are: American University-Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan), Al-Quds Bard College for Arts and Sciences (Palestine), and any higher education institution in Myanmar (Burma). This is a three-month fully funded residence opportunity, and the fellows can focus either on their research - doctoral or postdoctoral, or on teaching/curriculum development. The Fellows receive full access to CEU academic resources, can audit regular academic courses and receive customized training in research design, or in course development and student-centered teaching and learning.

The Research Excellence Fellowship is offered to academics employed in higher education institutions and/or academic research institutions in the countries of the Global South, 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. These Fellowships are particularly suited to facilitate research collaborations between the CEU units and scholars and their international academic counterparts. We would encourage you to share this announcement with any foreign colleagues in the broadly defined region of the Global South with whom you would like to initiate or advance joint research or institutional engagement.

Both Fellowships require adequate command of the English language and full-time residence in Budapest during the term of the Fellowship. Available funding covers international travel, visa and insurance costs, accommodations at the CEU Residence and a living stipend.

Deadline for applications to both programs for the academic year 2017/18 is 15 February 2017.

We would be most grateful for any assistance with disseminating this Call as widely as possible and encourage you to forward it to anyone who you think might be attracted to this opportunity and who your unit would be interested in hosting in 2017-18.
