Fellows

APPLY FOR A 2022/2023 FELLOWSHIP
Fellowships are designed for leading members of civil society and researchers from Eastern Europe and Central Asia to conduct intensive research, writing and networking. We bring fellows from the region to Prague to focus on their projects in a safe space, away from the daily routine of their organisations and home countries, in order to help them connect with other groups and individuals from across the EU. The range of fellows and types of projects we support are diverse, including journalists, lawyers, entrepreneurs, activists and former political prisoners working on everything from articles and books to films and comic strips. We encourage fellows to take a step back from their day-to-day routine to help them re-strategise, think and plan for the future of their society.
