PRE-DOC FELLOWSHIPS from the Dimitrov Endowment


The selection procedure for a pre-doc fellowship from funds of the ÖAW Dimitrov Endowment takes about two months.

An Award Committee, whose members are nominated by the Austrian Academy of Sciences, decides on allocation of the fellowships. The decision on the award of fellowships is made on the basis of the comparative assessment of the applications by Committee members; in addition, external reviewers may also be engaged.

If applications are considered by persons to whom individual committee members have a close professional or private relationship, those committee members will not take part in the decision-making process.

There is no legal appeal.
