EPSA Fellowship Scheme

EPSA's Fellowship Scheme provides junior* philosophers working in Central and Eastern Europe with the opportunity to visit a leading research institution in Western Europe. In addition, we now invite applications from Senior and Mid-Career scholars who have been adversely affected by the War in Ukraine, in accordance with our published statement.

An EPSA Fellowship is intended to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and living expenses for up to one month. EPSA Fellows are expected to be resident at their host institution and take part in its research activities. The Fellowship Scheme is made possible by the continued and generous support of our partner institutions, who cover the full costs of the awards. 

The Fellowship Scheme operates on a biennial basis.

*  For the purposes of these awards, "junior" is understood as researchers who are (a) in the last six months of their PhD or (b) have been awarded their PhD no more than five years prior to the application deadline.

What former Fellows say…

The EPSA Fellowship Scheme launched in 2015, as part of our ongoing mission to promote the European tradition in philosophy of science. Since then, we have had three cohorts. Here is what they have to say:

"The Fellowship gave me the opportunity to spend a very productive month at the Egenis Centre, where I will be working as a Marie Curie Fellow soon."

Özlem Yilmaz, Istanbul Technical University

"I gained a wider perspective on publishing, funding opportunities, the job market, and other crucial aspects of contemporary academia."

Borut Trpin, University of Ljubljana
