The CEU Institute for Advanced Study (CEU IAS) is pleased to invite applications for its fellowships for the academic year 2015/16.  CEU IAS fellows spend 6-10 months in Budapest and pursue their own research in the lively intellectual community of the other fellows, the university and the city of Budapest.  CEU IAS fellowships are highly competitive with an acceptance rate below 10%.

Fellowships Available:
SENIOR AND JUNIOR CORE FELLOWSHIPS– about 15 awarded each year


[email protected] IAS FELLOWSHIPS – 2 awarded each year
