Research Stay Fellowships at “Artes Liberales Institute” in Warsaw

Deadline:  30 June 2016
Open to: scholars from Belarus, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine
Fellowships: monthly allowance of USD 2,000


Research stay is offered within the Open Society Foundations Global Dialogues project. The purpose of the FIAL project is to support the development of the milieu of academics and researchers (coming from Belarus, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine) active in the field of humanities and social sciences with special attention paid to the liberal arts education, as well as those who work interdisciplinarily between arts and sciences.

During their stay in Poland they will be able, on the one hand, to familiarize themselves with the Polish experience (especially in the higher education system and in the advantages of the interdisciplinary approach to research, learn and study), on the other hand, work on and discuss their own projects. They will be able to share and popularize the effects of their work after return to their native countries: the best results in the work might be reached via “small steps”.


Eligible for application are scholars from Belarus, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine who hold doctoral degree (or equivalent e.g. kandydat nauk).


Each fellow will receive monthly allowance of USD 2,000 (i.e. he/she will receive equivalent in Polish złotys, after taxation) to cover the costs of stay in Warsaw including accommodation. Additional costs will be available to cover each fellows’ trip to Warsaw and back (insurance is to be covered by a grantholder before getting Polish visa). Duration of the fellowship: 6 months – September 2016-February 2017.
