Pforzheimer Fellowship Programme

Duration: 2019 – 2022

CAS starts this new programme in October 2019 to ensure the continuation of the Advanced Academia fellowships for senior Bulgarian scholars, originally funded by the America for Bulgaria Foundation. The fellowships are named after the American philanthropist and bibliophile Carl H. Pforzheimer III, benefactor to the programme. Mr. Phorzheimer has been an abiding member (now Co-Chairman Emeritus) of the Board of Directors of America for Bulgaria Foundation, as well as a long-lasting and staunch supporter of the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia.

The programme provides three 5-month scholarships per year for outstanding senior Bulgarian researchers and university professors.

Calls are announced every year in November on the CAS web-page.
