In its fifth year, the Institute for Advanced Study at Central European University (IAS CEU) is proud to have offered 15 Senior, 9 Junior and 3 Artist in Residence fellowships to scholars and artists coming from 10 disciplines and 17 countries. Since its launch in the fall of 2011, our institute has been offering fellowships to outstanding scholars from around the world to allow them to pursue their research for up to 9 months in Budapest. In the Institute's friendly and intellectually stimulating environment fellows work on their own projects and share their findings with peers through weekly seminars and other community programs. Fellows have access to all CEU facilities, including seminar and conference space, computer services, and library resources. They also benefit from the CEU's vibrant international character, its strong ties within Hungary and the region as well as its location in culturally rich Budapest.
