As part of HIF’s new Liberty Bridge Program, we are now accepting applications to our first Post-Graduate Visiting Research Fellowship for the 2020/2021 academic year.
This 12 month fully-funded research fellowship is established to support in-residence academic research at top US universities in the fields of liberal arts and social sciences, in areas where Hungarian academic research is underrepresented.
The goal of this fellowship is to support academic research of strategic importance to the US-Hungary relationship with educational institutions that are likely to become long-term partners for future academic collaborations.
Applicants must be at least in their third year of their PhD program at a Hungarian academic institution, or must have received their PhD within the last 5 years, preference will be given to those who are actively teaching in Hungary. Candidates must have secured a letter of invitation from a US host institution at the time of their application.
For this fellowship, we are looking for highly-motivated young Hungarian scholars with an outstanding academic record and the drive to be bridge builders between Hungary and the US.
The fellowship is designed to be family-friendly: the allowance will cover all visa fees, health insurance and international travel costs for the applicant’s dependents as well.
