2017 – 18 Short Term Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellows in Central European Studies (Click to download application information)

The Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellowships in Central European Studies enable outstanding scholars to conduct research on important issues related to Central Europe at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C.

Short term fellowships of up three (3) months are available anytime between September 2017 to June 2018. Applications are accepted anytime on a rolling basis.

Fellows are closely integrated into the research, training, and outreach activities of the Center for Transatlantic Relations (CTR) at SAIS, and will participate in CTR events and meetings. Each Fellow is expected to complete a research paper during the period of residence according to the terms of the assignment entered into with the Foundation.

Each year the Center and the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation identify several themes of particular interest. For 2017-18, the Center is particularly interested in receiving applications that deal with U.S. relations with central and eastern Europe and/or issues related to conflict resolution and transformation.
