Advanced Academia Fellowships for International Scholars


    In addition to supporting focus-group research, CAS Sofia invites outstanding scholars to pursue their individual research projects during in-residence periods of up to five months.

    The invited Fellows participate in the intellectual life and the scholarly community of the Centre (Bulgarian and foreign fellows) while working on projects of their own choice.

    Fellows receive adequate material and intellectual support and can profit from the Centre's wide international networks, international seminar- and guest-lecturer programme. CAS Sofia assists Fellows in all practical matters concerning travel, residence and research in Sofia.

    Eligibility

    Candidates must:

    • Be non-Bulgarian citizens;
    • Have completed a PhD in the fields of the humanities and social sciences;
    • International research experience (participation in projects and refereed conferences) and publications in peer-reviewed academic editions are strong advantages.

    WORKING LANGUAGE

    As an international academic institution CAS conducts most of its work in English which is also the language of the presentations of research results. Therefore, a good command of English is highly desirable.

    The selected Fellows are entitled to:

    • A monthly stipend of 700 euro (liable to 10% income tax) to cover living expenses related to the stay in Sofia.
