Deadline: SPI Visiting Scholar Exchange Program

The Slovene Research Initiative (SRI) at The Ohio State University invites proposals for the SRI Visiting Scholar Exchange Program. SRI is a collaborative program focused on faculty exchange administered by the Center for Slavic and East European Studies (CSEES) at Ohio State made possible by the generous support of the Slovene Ministry of Education and Science and the Research Center at the Slovene Academy of Sciences and Arts.

SRI seeks to advance the study of and research on Slovenia and the broader region of Central and Southeastern Europe. The Initiative will cover either two or four weeks of housing in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and access to conduct research at the Research Center of the Slovene Academy of Sciences and Arts. It does not support travel or any other expenses. Proposed exchanges should take place in late spring or during the summer. The SRI Committee might opt to select two proposals that request two weeks of housing, or one that requests four. Visiting Scholar Exchange proposals can focus on any discipline but should clearly demonstrate how the research or work conducted on the exchange will advance the understanding of the region.

Applications should be sent to by January 15, 2018.
Selection results will be announced in late January 2018.
