CEU Professorial and CEU Visiting Research Fellowships
The program is designed to promote original research, which can be of practical benefit to a particular country or region, and to increase exchange between scholars of the region and Central European University. The Research Fellowship Programs are applicable to citizens of countries in Central and Eastern Europe (except EU member states), the former Soviet Union of Mongolia holding a Ph. D. or equivalent, who are affiliated with a teaching or research institution within the above said countries.
The program supports two types of Research Fellows. CEU Professorial Research Fellows hold a full professorship, and are academics of established (preferably national) standing within their discipline. CEU Visiting Research Fellows are academics who have made a contribution to their discipline through publications, conference presentations, or other academic forums. Fellows are supported for a period of from one to six months, depending upon the type of research being undertaken. Both types of Fellowship cover accommodation and travel costs to/from Budapest (up to a maximum limit and after approval from the program coordinator), during the period of the Fellowship, and a monthly stipend. CEU Visiting Fellows will receive $900 per month, and CEU Professorial Fellows - $1500 per month.

The required outcome of the fellowship is a submission of an article to an international peer-reviewed journal or a preliminary book contract with an international publishing house. Within a year of completing the Professorial and Visiting Research Fellowship Program at CEU you are required to send to CEU’s Special Projects Office a copy of the original article or book in English, German or French, which is based on the research at CEU. The resulting publication should state that this research is the outcome of a Research Fellowship at CEU.
Whilst at CEU, Fellows will arrange to present one Public Lecture to their host Department and the broader CEU community and update SEP/SPO on the progress of their publication plans.
Within one month of completion of the Fellowship, Fellows are required to submit to the Special Projects Office of CEU a brief narrative report in English, describing the results of their research activities at CEU.
Fellows are required to be in residence at CEU for the duration of their Fellowship and are accommodated in CEU's Residence and Conference Center.

Application Forms with Criteria for Applicants in both categories are available from the SPO/SEP Office, National Soros Foundation Offices and electronically (see Application Forms above). CEU does not accept Fellows during the summer or the Christmas period due to the limited availability of professors, administrators and access to research materials during vacation. Please note: those who are or who plan to be involved in projects, research, teaching, or other activities sponsored or co-sponsored by the Soros Foundation or OSI for the duration of the Research Fellowship are not eligible to participate in the program.
Beside the completed application form applicants are required to send their CV, a research proposal, one letter of reference, copies of relevant certificates.
On the letter of reference, stamps and signatures are expected. The letter of reference can be sent by normal mail or fax. Alternatively a scanned version can be sent by email. In case of emergency, we can accept a letter of reference sent via e-mail from the mailbox of the person who issued it.
Applications are evaluated by the relevant CEU Department/Center and CEU's Special Projects Office. The research proposal shall fall within the broad thematic focus of the department or research center, and the areas of interest of its faculty.
