CENTRAL Leadership Program for graduate students and doctoral candidates

CENTRAL Leadership Program for graduate students and doctoral candidates HU
The CENTRAL Network is excited to announce grants for its new Leadership Program in summer 2024. 

The program will take place between 25 August – 15 September 2024

Application Deadline: 15 May 2024

The CENTRAL leadership program seeks advanced graduate students or doctoral candidates with a minimum B2 level of English proficiency and a basic interest in Central European politics, history, and culture.

The CENTRAL Leadership Program offers an immersive journey through the region. In this unique initiative, 30 students from CENTRAL’s five universities as well as Ukraine's Ivan Franko University Lviv and Hungary's Andrássy Universität Budapest, will explore Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, and Budapest.

The selection of participants is conducted independently by each partner university, employing equitable selection methods. Prospective participants are required to submit their CV and a motivation letter to central-network@univie.ac.at as part of the application process. Subsequently, their home university will arrange an interview. Key selection criteria encompass motivation for the program, affiliation with Central Europe, previous civic engagement and career objectives relating to leadership positions.

Participants in the program enjoy comprehensive support covering all program expenses across the five locations. This includes an Interrail Pass for train travel, accommodation, lunches, special dinners, and cultural activities. Individuals are responsible for their travel arrangements to and from the first (Warsaw) and last (Budapest) locations. While meals, other than lunches and special dinners, are also self-funded, the program ensures seamless coordination for an enriching experience.
