Second Edition of the Pilecki Fellowship Program | Call for Applications

The deadline for submission of applications for the Pilecki Fellowship has been extended! Deadline for applications: October 31, 2020.

The Pilecki Institute is very pleased to announce the second edition of the Pilecki Fellowship program, which is awarded to both experienced senior and junior researchers worldwide, representing disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, especially modern history, political science and international relations, sociology, international law studies, and political philosophy.

Fellowship recipients will be invited to spend a term of five months within the academic year 2021-2022 (the timeframe can be selected by the candidate) at the Pilecki Institute in Warsaw. It may be possible to extend this time period depending on the project and circumstances.

The Institute invites scholars to carry out their own research projects in this vibrant and intellectually stimulating environment, who will contribute with their approaches, perspectives, and new ideas. We are looking for scholars ready to work in a multidisciplinary and vigorous team and to participate in vibrant discussions on political, social, economic, cultural, international and legal aspects and implications of the complex phenomenon of totalitarianism.
