Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellowship for Bulgarian Scholars

The Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellowship enabled a junior scholar to spend six months at the IWM in Vienna to pursue her/his research project while working in residence at the Institute. They became a member of the international and multidisciplinary scholarly community at the IWM and were invited to present their project at the Institute. This fellowship program ran from 2011 - 2013. 

Candidates for the Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellowship had to be Bulgarian citizens; have been enrolled in a doctoral program or recently have obtained a PhD and were no older than 35 years.

All projects undertaken under this program were within the humanities and social sciences, and had to be related to Bulgaria and/or South-Eastern Europe in a broader European or international context.

Presented below is a selection of fellowships as we digitize our archive. 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.
