MCC Visiting Fellowship Program

MCC launched the MCC Visiting Fellowship Program in 2020. In this framework, MCC provides an opportunity for outstanding foreign researchers and professors (as well as Hungarian scholars living abroad) to join in the MCC's complex activities to conduct research and teach in Budapest for a period between 2 weeks and 1 year.

Who can apply?

We welcome applications from all researchers, regardless of research areas although preference is given to: Political Science, International Relations, Law, Economics, Social Sciences, Psychology, Media, History and Philosophy, and Environmental Studies.

Prospective fellows can apply in two categories: junior fellows (under the age of 35) and senior fellows (above the age of 35) for a period between 2 weeks to 12 months.

What do we offer?

As an MCC fellow you will take part in MCC's academic, research and teaching activity, you will have the opportunity to write essays, research papers for recognized periodicals and actively get involved in the Hungarian public life.

The MCC Visiting Fellowship Program is a fully-funded opportunity with a monthly stipend of up to 5,000 EUR for junior fellows and up to 10,000 EUR for senior fellows. We aim to provide a predictable funding model. The fellowship's financial assistance covers:

  • round-trip flight to and from Budapest
  • health insurance
  • visa costs if applicable
  • a monthly stipend
  • housing
  • office space
  • international conference support

MCC has a family-centered approach, and fellows are eligible for childcare and other family benefits.

How can I apply?

We have a rolling application process, beginning 1 March, 2021. The application can be submitted on the website, followed by an oral discussion. Notification is expected within one month after the application.
