The Max Weber Programme (MWP) at the European University Institute (EUI) is the largest and most innovative postdoctoral programme in the historical and social sciences in Europe.
The Programme awards 1, 2, and exceptionally 3 year long fellowships according to departments.
In addition to the scholarships funded by the Max Weber Programme itself, there are additional grants available that are funded by governments/foundations in Australia, Finland, Greece, Poland, Slovenia and Japan to which nationals of these countries (and in some cases residents in these countries) may also apply. Suitable applicants of any nationality may also apply for a second year at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (IHEID).
NB the availability of special grants varies from year to year- in some years more countries and agencies may offer grants and in others fewer. Up to date details can be found here. We automatically consider eligible applicants for these opportunities.
