The Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies invites interested scholars, researchers, and other professionals with a Ph.D. or professional equivalent to apply to the CSEEES Fellows Program, designed to support and facilitate the advancement of scholarly research and teaching about Russia, Eurasia, and East Europe. This is a two-year affiliation (with the possibility of renewal).

CSEEES Fellows benefit from the academic community and research opportunities available at UNC-Chapel Hill, as well as from practical support from the Center. Fellows are entitled to:

  • On-campus and electronic access to UNC-CH’s library resources, including our vast Slavic and East European Collections
  • Use of office space and computer access at the Center
  • Opportunities to present their research to faculty and students
  • A UNC E-mail account
  • A UNC OneCard (University ID Card)

Those interested in applying should submit a current CV and a cover letter to The cover letter should state a proposed research project and how the applicant plans on using the resources offered at UNC-Chapel Hill to complete or advance the project. In addition, the applicant should describe how he/she plans on engaging with the CSEEES affiliated faculty and students during his/her tenure. We particularly encourage applications from colleagues in the region.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. If selected, applicants are required to pay a $300 administrative fee. For those interested in a semester- or yearlong affiliation as visiting scholars (which would require visa support), please contact us with questions about the application procedure and fees.
