Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowships provide a framework for established academics with an international reputation to pursue their research at the EUI. Fellowships last for up to ten months in one of the EUI’s four Departments which in turn invite fellows to participate in departmental activities (seminars, workshops, colloquia, etc.).
Deadline: 30 March & 30 September each year
Fellows are encouraged to make contact with researchers sharing their academic interests, may be involved in the teaching and thesis supervision tasks of EUI professors, and associated with one of the research projects being carried out at the EUI.
There are two annual deadlines for applications – 30 March and/or 30 September
- the Department of Law and the Department of History and Civilization consider applications only for the 30 March deadline
- the Department of Political and Social Sciences considers applications only for the 30 September deadline. The next deadline 30 September 2013 is for applications in the calendar year 2015.
- the Department of Economics considers applications for the 30 March and the 30 September deadline

Candidates of all nationalities are eligible.
Fellows should have a good knowledge of English and of any other language relevant to their proposed research.

Candidates must indicate their intended length of stay in the application but the hosting department may propose a different and/or shorter period to successful candidates subject to available funding. Fellowships are not normally awarded for the months of July and August.

Fellowships are not taxed by the EUI, but fellows are required to comply with any other tax provisions which may apply to them.
Fellows must have adequate medical insurance cover during their stay at the Institute. Fellows can either provide proof of their own insurance scheme or subscribe to the EUI’s Van Breda Insurance Scheme at their own expense.
