Research Grants 2010

The Center for Urban History of East Central Europe invites applications for the first part of its annual Grant Program. The Center welcomes applications which reflect a broad interpretation of urban history as a discipline where diverse humanities and social science approaches meet. Projects can be based, for instance, on one or several of the following approaches: "traditional" archival research, oral history, ethnographic, or sociological methodologies.

Please Note: The Center is currently re-structuring its Grant Program so that the call for Research Grants had to be postponed until the fall of this year but the Center's Residence Grants will be awarded in spring.

Residence Grants will be available for graduate students and scholars (independently of citizenship or place of work or residence) interested in working in Lviv. The grants consist of up to one month of free accommodation at the Center and access to the Center's resources. Recipients will be given a room in the Center’s modern shared guest appartment. All rooms face the Center's green courtyard and have wireless internet connection.

Residence Grant recipients will present their research at the Center and submit a paper (largely based on work done during their stay at the Center) for publication in its ece-urban electronic publication series (see http://www.lvivcenter.org/en/publications/) no later than six months after the end of their grant period.

Application Materials:

  • Project Description (1000-2000 words)
  • CV
  • One Letter of Recommendation (only in the case of scholars who have no doctoral decree or its equivalent)

Please send all application materials as Word or PDF attachments to the Center's Academic Coordinator, Dr. Iryna Matsevko, by e-mail (i.matsevko@lvivcenter.org) no later than 15 March 2010. Please enter "Residence Grant Application 2010" in the "Re"-line.
