This Fellowship amounts to £3000 and should cover a two (maximum three) month stay in London anytime between June – September 2013, namely travel expenses, accommodation and subsistence.
This Fellowship is intended primarily but not exclusively, for scholars in the early stages of their career, namely doctoral candidates and post-doctoral fellows whose work and research focuses on any topic related to the history and international affairs of Bulgaria and the Balkans in the Twentieth Century and beyond. Although candidates of Bulgarian nationality will have priority, this fellowship is also awarded to candidates of non-Bulgarian nationality. Above all, it will be the quality of the candidate and of the proposed research that will determine the selection. Please visit the website for further details and application process.
