CAS Sofia is a private institute with a global and interdisciplinary focus. It encourages top-tier research in the humanities and social sciences and is based in Sofia, Bulgaria. Outstanding scholars are invited by CAS Sofia to work on their own research projects during in-residence periods of up to five months, in addition to funding focus-group research.
The invited Fellows work on projects of their own choosing while engaging in the intellectual life and scholarly community of the Centre (Bulgarian and international fellows). Fellows benefit from the Center’s extensive worldwide networks, international seminar- and guest-lecturer program, and substantial material and intellectual assistance. CAS Sofia offers assistance to Fellows with all logistical issues relating to travel, housing, and research in Sofia.

The chosen Fellows are entitled to: An allowance of 800 Euros per month* (subject to 10% income tax) to support living costs during their stay in Sofia.
