Special Fellowship for Scholars at Risk

SCRIPTS has set up an emergency fund for scholars at risk from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. Scholars who fled from Ukraine as well as scholars at risk due to the domestic political situation in Russia and Belarus can apply for a special fellowship at SCRIPTS. They will receive a basic stipend and will have access to an office space. During this funding period, SCRIPTS commits to supporting the fellows in preparing project proposals to acquire third-party funding. At the same time, active involvement of the fellows with SCRIPTS research groups and networks will be guaranteed.

  • The potentially funded person has most recently worked as a (junior) researcher in Ukraine, Belarus, or Russia. This is independent of the person’s citizenship.
  • The researcher's field of research must fit into the overall framework of SCRIPTS.
  • Applicants from Belarus and Russia must provide a statement regarding their risk situation. See below for details about the form of the statement.
  • A physical presence in Berlin is expected during the length of the fellowship.

A scholarship application must include:

  1. A current CV with respective certificates of graduation (In case the original documents are not available in English, please provide an English translation).
  2. A description of the applicant’s current situation regarding their risk situation if currently residing within Belarus or Russia (1 page max. preferably with third-party confirmation).
  3. An explanation of how your research fits into the overall framework of SCRIPTS (1 page max.).

Applications are accepted via irc@scripts-berlin.eu.

Due to the ongoing war, SCRIPTS reserves the right to make selective changes to the framework and to further develop the program.
