The CEU Scholarships Committee has reserved a small sum of money from its general pool of travel funds. The Committee invites applicants from post-comprehensive CEU doctoral students and in exceptional cases, the committee would consider applications from currently 2nd year MA students as well, but preference will be given to Ph.D. students for this purpose.

Application materials required are outlined in the Winter School Grant Application Form. The Committee would like to emphasize that each application must include (a) a letter from the applicant's supervisor confirming that the courses offered in the Winter School are necessary for furthering the applicant's work at this stage of her/his research and (b) a letter from either the Head or Doctoral Program Director confirming that such courses are not currently offered in the applicant's Department.
