Visiting Fellowship Program

Through its Visiting Fellowship Program, MCC provides an opportunity for outstanding foreign researchers, professors, and professionals to research and teach with us for any period ranging between 2 weeks and 6 months, with a possible extension to 12 months.

Through this program, MCC welcomes applications from all academic fields, though preference is given to those whose expertise centers on Political Science, International Relations, Law, Economics, Social Sciences, Psychology, Media, History, Philosophy and Environmental Studies.

While our Visiting Fellows will primarily take part in MCC’s academic, research, and teaching activities they will have the opportunity to write essays and research papers for domestic periodicals, informative websites, blogs, and are expected to participate in Hungarian public life.

The Visiting Fellowship Program provides a competitive stipend of up to 5,000 EUR for junior fellows and up to 10,000 EUR for senior fellows. Junior Fellow status is offered to those under 35, while senior fellowships are offered to those over 35 years.

In line with our family-centered approach, we offer both financial assistance and flexibility to encourage and support potential fellows with families to join MCC.

In addition to the monthly stipend, MCC also provides:

  • Flights To and From Budapest
  • Health Insurance (including child and family benefits)
  • Visa Costs (if applicable)
  • Office Space
  • Support for Research and Work-Related Travel

If interested, we request that you apply through our website. Selected candidates will be invited to an online interview, after which admittance will be decided. Please note that it is advisable to apply at least 4 months prior to your intended starting date.
