The New Europe College - Institute for Advanced Study in Bucharest, Romania -, announces the Europa Fellowship Program, sponsored by the VolkswagenStiftung (Hannover, Germany).  

The program targets especially researchers and academics from South-Eastern Europe. Applications from young Western scholars working on South-Eastern Europe are also welcome. Applicants must be doctoral students, or hold a Ph.D. title. 

Duration of the Fellowship: a full academic year (10 months, October through July); one-term fellowships (October through February, or March through July) can also be considered. 

Location: the New Europe College in Bucharest.

The Fellowship consists of: a monthly stipend of 600 Euro (tax free), accommodation, international transportation to and from the home country of the Fellows at the beginning and the end of the Fellowship, as well as for season holidays. Fellows who choose to stay for the whole academic year are offered a one-month research trip abroad to an institution of their choice (2 560 Euro for transportation, accommodation, and per diem).

The Fellows will be invited as members of a team, working in the framework of a research theme entitled Traditions of the New Europe. A Pre-history of the European Integration in South-Eastern Europe. Each Fellow is expected to pursue his/her own research project, and to take part in scientific events related to the project, and in other events organized by the New Europe College. Fellows are expected to hand us at the end of their Fellowship a paper representing the result of their research work, to be included in a NEC publication. 

Working languages: English, French, and German. A good command of English is desirable.

The application must include a project addressing research questions related to the project. The deadline for sending the completed application is July 10, 2006. The applications will be evaluated by the Scientific Board of the NEC. We will get in touch with the applicants concerning the results of the evaluation process.
