Award Details
Award Activity

The award is dedicated to researchers in the humanities and social sciences who are looking for a stimulating scientific environment to conduct their research while freed of their regular teaching and administrative duties. Innovative research projects are especially welcome. The Host Institution is open to a variety of research methods, including theory, analyses of original sources, and analyses of large secondary data sets.

Grantees will be part of  a fellowship program at PIASt, dedicated to outstanding researchers from all regions of the world, who want to pursue self-directed work in fine research conditions. They will form a small but stimulating community, which will benefit from its multi-disciplinary composition and will allow for a free exchange of ideas and opinions in a spirit of cross-disciplinary dialogue.

Apart from independent and individual research, the grantees will be expected to take part in seminars at PIASt, usually conducted twice a week, and in daily lunches, which will provide opportunities to exchange ideas among the current fellows.
