Hungary: CEU Summer University – Call for applications

Established in 1996, the Central European University's Summer University program (SUN) hosts high-level, research-oriented, interdisciplinary and innovative academic courses as well as workshops on policy issues for professional development in the social sciences and the humanities. Courses are taught by distinguished international faculty (including CEU professors), and the participants are advanced doctoral students, junior or post-doctoral researchers, teachers and professionals. While applications from all over the world are encouraged, priority continues to be given to applicants from central and eastern Europe, the countries of the former Soviet Union and countries with emerging democracies worldwide. Applicants from these countries, when admitted on merit, will be eligible for scholarships, while those from developed countries will usually be expected to pay their own fees.
