American Research Center in Sofia Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship Program 2019-2020, Bulgaria

Publish Date: Feb 01, 2019

Deadline: Mar 29, 2019




The American Research Center in Sofia Foundation invites applications for its 2019–2020 Pre-Doctoral Fellowship for US-based Students.

The duration of the fellowships is 9 months (September–May) or 3 months (September–November or February–April). In addition to independent research, fellows will participate in the academic program of ARCS, which may include a Lecture Series designed to provide a broad thematic vision of Bulgarian and Balkan history and culture from prehistory to the present day. Fellows receive free housing in shared rooms in the ARCS hostel. Fellows should secure funding to cover their travel expenses between North America and Bulgaria. 

This fellowship can be combined with another fellowship; however, you must notify ARCS, and we will negotiate the terms of the ARCS Fellowship. We strongly encourage you to inquire about possibilities for funding from your home institution in a timely manner and to indicate this in your application.


Applicants must be graduate students of any citizenship enrolled in North American academic institutions or academic institutions accredited in North America, who are engaged in research in the humanities and/or social sciences with a focus on Bulgaria or the Balkan Peninsula (antiquity through modern day). APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please complete the application form, renaming it to include your surname, and send it electronically as a PDF. Make sure to include a CV and a Project Description as Microsoft Word documents or as PDFs. University transcripts should also be sent electronically, and two letters from scholars in the field, commenting on the value and feasibility of the project, should be submitted directly (by the scholars) as Word documents or PDFs.
