Independent Bulgarian-Swiss Fellowships for Bulgarian Junior Scholars and Bulgarian Academic Diaspora

Duration: 2019 – 2024

In 2019 the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia launched a new fellowship programme for young (post-doc and early career) Bulgarian scholars and Bulgarian academic diaspora.

The programme is pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding which was signed on 8 November 2018 between the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Bulgaria and the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation. It aims to promote and strengthen international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary exchange of people and ideas in academia on the basis of scientific excellence, mutual benefit and complementary support. Please see the Memorandum published in State Gazette, Issue 97, p.44.

In agreement with the Memorandum the host of the programme, the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia announces two calls for:

  • Five 9-months fellowships for young Bulgarian scholars affiliated at local universities and institutes, and
  • Two 3-months fellowships for Bulgarian researchers abroad.
Calls are announced annually in November on the CAS website.
