Institute for Human Sciences Fellowships 2006

Since its founding in 1982, the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) has laid particular emphasis on the resurrection of an open exchange of ideas with academics, intellectuals, and politicians from Central and Eastern Europe, an exchange that has increasingly included researchers from North America. The Institute’s mission is to offer, in Austria, a place for research and discussion crossing borders and disciplines. Forming a fundamental part of its work, the manifold scholarship programs of the IWM include the following:

  • Józef Tischner Fellowships – awarded to junior researchers from Poland and young Polish-American scholars, this six-month fellowship is open to all academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Application deadline: 15 December 2005
  • Körber Fellowships: History and Memory in Europe – six-month fellowship aiming to support projects that contribute to a trans-national perspective on modern European history. Application deadline: 15 December 2005
  • Andrew W. Mellon Visiting Fellowships – three-month fellowship enabling scholars from Eastern and Central Europe to work within the framework of the scholarly community of the IWM on research projects of their choice. Application deadline: 15 December 2005
  • Paul Celan Fellowships for Translators – six-month fellowship for academics to translate important works in the humanities or social sciences from an Eastern to a Western European language, or vice versa, or from one Eastern European language to another. Application deadline: 22 December 2005
  • Milena Jesenská Fellowships for Journalists - three-month fellowship to enable experienced European journalists in print, broadcasting, and electronic media to work on projects of their own choice, free of daily duties and obligations. Next call: early 2006

Each year approximately forty Visiting Fellows and Junior Visiting Fellows from Europe and the United States are awarded stipends to pursue their studies at the IWM as members of the Institute's scholarly community.
