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.
A partial SUN Scholarship covers tuition costs and accommodation with breakfast in the CEU Residence Centre. A full SUN scholarship, in addition to covering tuition and accommodation costs, provides a full or partial travel grant. Both scholarships will include the following: tuition for a minimum of 24 contact hours per week; a certificate of attendance; access to an E-learning page with readings, assignments, etc.; access to CEU facilities such as the library, IT services, the sports centre (including the use of the indoor swimming pool) and tennis courts; and some social and cultural events such as the welcome and farewell receptions, social outings, fieldtrips, film screenings, and so forth.
Deadlines for application differ from course to course; applications are accepted no later than March 31, 2009.
