The Pontica Magna Fellowship Program


This Fellowship Program, sponsored by the VolkswagenStiftung (Germany), invites young researchers, media professionals, writers and artists from the countries around the Black Sea (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine), but also beyond it, in Central Asia, for a stay of one or two terms at the New Europe College, during which they have the opportunity to work on projects of their choice.

The program welcomes a wide variety of disciplines in the 3elds of humanities and social sciences. Besides hosting a number of Fellows, the College organizes within this program workshops and symposia on topics relevant to the history, present, and prospects of this region. This program is therefore strongly linked to the former Black Sea Link Fellowships.
