New Europe College-Institute for Advanced Study in Bucharest (Romania) launches the annual competition for the 2021/2022 Fellowships.

Duration: For Romanian citizens: a full academic year (10 months, starting with October 2021); for non-Romanian citizens: a full academic year or one term (5 months, starting with October 2021 or March 2022).

What we expect: Fellows are expected to work on their projects and take part in the scientific events organized by NEC. Presence at the weekly seminars discussing the work in progress of the Fellows is compulsory. At the end of their Fellowship, Fellows are expected to hand in a research paper, reflecting the results of their work over the duration of the Fellowship. The papers will be included in a NEC publication.


NEC Fellowships are open to postdoctoral level scholars (with the exception of Pontica Magna, which also accepts applications from doctoral students and non-degree candidates – see below). Romanian and international candidates in all fields of the humanities and social sciences are eligible for the core NEC program. Other Fellowship programs target candidates from specific countries or academic fields.


The Fellowship consists of: a monthly stipend of 850 Euros (tax free); accommodation in Bucharest, comprising living quarters and working space; reimbursement of travel costs from the home/residence country to Bucharest and back. Fellows who stay for the whole academic year are offered a one-month research trip to an institution of their choice. Fellows have free access to the NEC library and electronic resources.
