The Junior Visiting Fellowship program in cooperation with Boston University and Boston College offered graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences the opportunity to pursue their dissertation research in residence at the IWM in Vienna as members of the Institute’s international and multidisciplinary scholarly community consisting of Permanent and Visiting Fellows.
Fellowships were awarded for a period of six to ten months. In order to qualify, applicants needed to be full-time graduate students and have a well-conceived research project that corresponded to the IWM’s fields of research or policy oriented projects.
Applications were especially encouraged from doctoral and post-doctoral candidates in Anthropology, International Relations, Modern History, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, Sociology, and from master’s degree candidates in Journalism or International Relations.
Presented below is a selection of fellowships. As this is a past program we are working through our archives to ensure that fellows and fellowships are represented accurately. If you were a fellow under this program, please do get in touch with us.

As an Institute we had close ties to Boston: The Institute for Human Sciences (IHS) at Boston University was established in November 2001 as a joint initiative of the University and the IWM. It was an independent, interdisciplinary center for advanced study in the humanities and social sciences, and Boston University.
