EUI Fellowships

Max Weber fellowships are designed for junior post-docs who would like to pursue an academic career, concentrate on their own research and enhance their academic practice in a multidisciplinary environment. Max Weber Fellowships are open to candidates who have received a doctorate in the social sciences (economics, law, political science, sociology, history and related fields) within the last 5 years. 

Applicants for Max Weber Fellowships who are nationals and/or residents (please check details on eligibility) of Australia, Finland, Greece, or Japan may be considered for the grant schemes that are run by funding bodies in these countries. We also anticipate similar arrangements for Portuguese and Slovenian nationals.

The School of Transnational Governance fellowship programme for young policy professionals is aimed at early- and mid- career policy makers, civic leaders, civil servants, journalists or scholars. Participants in the programme will have demonstrated a key interest or involvement in policy issues, notably at the level of politics, civil service, media, academia, or non-governmental organisations.

The Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) offers Jean Monnet Fellowships to scholars who have obtained their doctorate at least 5 years before the start of the fellowship. During their stay at the RSCAS, fellows work on a research topic that fits well in the overall research profile of the RSCAS and participate in the academic life of the Centre and of the EUI. Jean Monnet Fellowships have a duration of 1 year, renewable once.

Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships provide a framework for established academics with an international reputation to pursue their research at the EUI. Fellowships last for up to ten months in one of the EUI's four Departments which in turn invite fellows to participate in departmental activities(seminars, workshops, colloquia, etc.).
