The CEU Summer University (SUN) offers a series of high-level, research based, intensive, one and two-week courses in the social sciences and humanities. It is aiming to involve a high-level international faculty (including CEU faculty), and advanced doctoral students, junior or post- doctoral researchers, teachers and professionals as participants. The summer courses are designed to provide help to develop and refine participants research and policy agenda as well as integrate their teaching with innovative research.

Applications are invited from all countries on a scholarship or a fee- paying basis.
Minimum requirement for application is a university degree. Undergraduates without a university degree will not be considered. The program encourages applications from advanced Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, researchers and professionals. Before submitting your application please check at www.ceu.hu/sun whether the course of your choice has any additional course-specific application requirements or deadlines.

The language of instruction is English; thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops. (In some instances you may be contacted for a telephone interview.) Individuals are not eligible to apply to a SUN course if they attended a CRC (Curriculum Resource Center) session in the same calendar or academic year (i.e., they must wait one year after their participation in one of the above programs before applying to SUN). Additionally, applicants are not eligible to apply to SUN if they have already participated in two CEU faculty initiative activities (i.e., CRC, SUN) within a four-year period. Preference will be given to new applicants over former participants in Summer University courses. Currently enrolled CEU MA students are not eligible. Ph.D. students may audit the course with the course directors permission.

Applicants from developed countires:
Participants from developed countries can be admitted on a fee-paying basis, i.e. they are expected to cover their participation costs, which include tuition, travel, accommodation, insurance and living expenses. However, there are a limited number of tuition waivers available, which may be applied for on a competitive basis. If you wish to apply for a tuition waiver, please attach a cover letter to your application specifying your reasons.

Financial Aid:
Participants from Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union and Mongolia, as well as those coming from emerging democracies worldwide can apply for financial aid. See the various financial aid packages below.

Tuition waiver:
The tuition fee is provided. Recipients have to cover their own insurance, travel, accommodation, and living expenses. Hungarian participants with residence in Budapest should choose this category.

Partial SUN Scholarship:
Includes tuition fee and accommodation. The recipients of the scholarship have to cover their travel and living expenses.

Full SUN Scholarship:
Includes tuition fee, accommodation and a full or partial travel grant. The recipients of the scholarship have to cover their living expenses.

The maximum travel grant awarded is EUR 1,160; visa costs and short domestic trips are not reimbursed. The citizens of the following countries are not eligible to apply for a travel grant: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia and the western part of Ukraine, i.e. they should choose the Partial SUN Scholarship. The scholarships do not include insurance or living expenses, participants have to cover these on their own. Living expenses including local transportation and meals are estimated to be EUR 170 for two weeks.

As the number of fully funded scholarships available is limited, funding offered by institutions or individuals is welcome so that we can invite more well qualified applicants. When preparing your application, please consider if you or your institution can contribute to the program expenses. Faculty and Ph.D. students are advised to approach their home departments for travel grants; researchers may have research grants available which can cover their participation; professionals may turn to their employers to fund their training in SUN. While selection of applicants will be based on the academic merit of the applications, those willing to bear the participation costs fully or partially will be preferred in case of equally strong applications.
