Ukraine in European Dialogue Fellowships

This junior fellowship program aims to support the research of Ukrainian scholars who are completing or have recently completed doctoral studies in a Ukrainian institution of higher education. It offers access to the resources of the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) in Vienna to younger researchers who have demonstrated exceptional talent to allow them to work on a research project of their own choice. The fellowships are open to all academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences (including history). Research proposals related to one of the Institute’s main research fields are strongly encouraged.

  • must be Ukrainian citizens
  • must be enrolled in a doctoral program at a Ukrainian institution of higher education or have recently obtained a PhD
