Open Call: Milena Jesenská Fellowships


The Institute for Human Sciences (Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, IWM) in Vienna announces a new call for applications for Milena Jesenská Fellowships, 2014-2015. The programme addresses experienced European journalists who deal with cultural topics, the term “cultural” being interpreted in a broad sense to encompass a wide variety of intellectual and artistic fields. However, applicants’ work may also deal with societal issues of European relevance related to one of IWM’s research fields.

Four selected fellows will be invited to spend three months at the IWM in Vienna, during July 2014 – June 2015. They will receive a stipend in the amount of EUR 7,500. In addition, the IWM provides the fellows with a personal office, administrative and research facilities, as well as other services free of charge. Travel grants of up to EUR 1,900 can be paid for research trips to neighboring countries.

Deadline for application: 15 February 2014
