2019-20 Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellows

The Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellowships enable outstanding scholars to conduct research on important issues related to the United States, Europe and World Order at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, D.C.

During the academic year 2019-2020 the Center intends to award the following fellowships:

  • 1 Academic Year Fellowship for a nine (9) month period from September 2019 to May 2020

  • 2-3 Short Term Fellowships for an in-residence period of between 1 and 3 months.

  • Fellows are integrated into research, training, and outreach activities of the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Professor at the School. During the academic year 2019-2020 research and related activities will focus on Europe’s role in global order.

    Fellows will join a team of post-doctoral fellows who will focus on this subject during a regular series of high-level seminars, peer review sessions, and opportunities for direct engagement with senior foreign policy practitioners and leading scholars of statecraft and world order.

  • Each Fellow is expected to complete a research paper during the period of residence according to the terms of the assignment entered into with the Foundation. Eligibility Applicants for Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Fellowships must have a doctorate or be at the postdoctorate level, have demonstrated research capacity, be fluent in English, and be eligible for a J-1 visa.

  • Preference will be given to those who are no more than 6 years beyond completing their dissertation, although others are also eligible. For the full academic year Fellowship, strong preference will be given to qualified and competitive candidates from Austrian institutions, although the Fellowship is open to candidates of other nationalities as well.

  • For the short-term Fellowships, preference will also be given to qualified and competitive candidates from Austrian institutions, but the Center encourages applications from candidates from other countries as well.

Stipend

Each Fellow will enter into a research assignment with the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation and will receive a monthly stipend of up to $5,000; an office with computer; Internet access and voicemail; access to Johns Hopkins University libraries and other facilities.
