Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellowship for a Bulgarian Scholar

The Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellowship will enable a junior scholar to spend six months at the IWM in Vienna to pursue her or his research project while working in residence at the Institute. The Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellow will be a member of the international and multidisciplinary scholarly community at the IWM and is invited to present her or his project at the Institute.

5. Cultures and Institutions in Central and Eastern Europe
6. The Philosophical Work of Jan Patočka

The IWM will provide the grantee with a personal office including access to Internet, in-house research and administrative facilities. In addition, the fellow will be provided free of charge with standard consumable supplies and lunch in its cafeteria. The Tsvetan Stoyanov Fellow will receive a stipend in the amount of Euro 1,500 per month. The 6-month research term must be completed between January and December 2013.
