  • At the time of application, the applicant must either hold a full-time academic position at any non-profit (private or public) university in any Central or Eastern European/former Soviet Union country, or must have pre-arranged for a full-time position starting no later than October 2016;
  • Applicants who will teach principles of economics on a regular basis;
  • Applicants starting academic careers;
  • Applicants assuming positions at universities where their presence is likely to make the greatest positive impact on the university.


  • The fellowship carries an award of USD 7,200 per year and is guaranteed to be provided for 3 years;
