Grants are made to citizens of any countries for a variety of research and educational activities (primary advanced research and university teaching).

Appendix A

Grant categories offered by CIAS

CIAS offers the following fellowship types for those applied through the open application procedure:

  • senior research fellow (selected from applicants of this grant category)
  • junior research fellow (selected from applicants of this grant category)
  • non-resident (senior) research fellow (selected from applicants of this grant category)

The typical duration of a grant period is one semester (5 months) or two semesters (10 months).

An applicant will be considered as a senior research fellow if

  • at least 5 years has passed since the applicant earned his/her PhD and
  • at least 5 articles were published in peer-reviewed academic journals (Q1, Scimago)

An applicant will be considered as a junior research fellow if (s)he fails to meet any of the conditions above.

Grant structure offered by CIAS

Grants are financed by the Foundation of the Corvinus University and/or by the Government of Hungary or by other sponsors. The basic structure of the grant package is the same regardless of the original source of the financial support.

The main components of the grant package are

  • stipend,
  • housing,
  • cost of travel,
  • insurance,
  • family allowance (for those with spouse and/or kid(s)).

The amounts indicated are calculated in pre-tax (before tax) base.

* Based on special individual circumstances the actual amount can be different as indicated.

If the grantee will provide a certificate of residence according to the double taxation convention between his/her country of residence and Hungary and a certificate of social security coverage by the grantee’s home country (EU countries: A1 form, non-Eu countries: a document that states that the grantee has a medical and/or health insurance in his/her home country and the grantee pay the contribution for that there) then he/she will receive the below indicated gross amount. If he/she won’t do that, then the University (CIAS) will pay a reduced amount (the amount of the calculated tax will be subtracted from the total amount of the grant package).

The amount of the calculated tax in Hungary can be as much as around 30% of the pre-tax total.

The amount of stipend is proportional to the duration of stay (XX months).

Housing is arranged individually by the grantee, but if it will be needed the University/CIAS will help to find a good solution.
The amount for housing is proportional to the duration of stay.

Cost of travel: one travel from home address to Budapest and back from Budapest to home address is financed by the University/CIAS. A flat amount is offered; for those from within Europe it is 700 EUR for a round trip; for those from overseas it is 1400 EUR for a roundtrip. Travel of any other additional (accompanying) person/s is not covered as part of the grant package (must be covered by the grantee). The grantee’s further travels are not financially supported.

Insurance only for the grantee for the duration of stay is covered by University/CIAS as part of the grant package. The amount is 140 EUR/month.

Family allowance: for those with spouse or one child 420 EUR/month is added to the stipend will be offered. For those with two or more family members (e.g. spouse and one kid or more children or with two or more children) 700 EUR/month will be added to the stipend, as part of the grant package.

Resident research fellows will stay in Budapest for the whole period of the grant. The grantee could leave Budapest for professional activities (e.g. conferences) related to his/her research proposal and short family visits. The head of the CIAS must approve any kind of travel in advance. The CIAS cannot provide further support to cover the expenses of these travels.

Non-resident grant

For those, who would like to do their research work partly at Corvinus Institute for Advanced Studies (CIAS) and partly at their home environment.

This type of grant recommended for senior researchers.

The typical duration of the grant period is 5 or 10 (2*5) months which is one or two semesters. Within a 5-month period the grantee will spend a minimum of 1 month at CIAS Budapest (preferably at the beginning of the grant period), and the remaining time will be used in the home environment of the researcher.

While at CIAS in Budapest the research fellow will enjoy the professional support of CIAS and the Corvinus University. He/she will be a member of an active and supporting group of CIAS and its research fellows.

While in Budapest the grantee will receive his/her financial and service support like the resident CIAS fellows. (The grant package contains the stipend, travel support, housing, insurance, and family allowance.) While the grantee works in home environment, he/she will receive a reduced amount of renumeration (only stipend).

The applicant can define his/her plans for sharing the applied grant period for CIAS-Budapest and for home stay. If the grantee plans to pay a second visit to Budapest during the 5-month period, 50% of the cost of travel will be paid by CIAS.

When the non-resident grant owner resides at his/her home country the amount of stiped is 1500 euro/month.

Required activities and tasks to perform

By accepting the offered grant, the grant owner agrees to fulfil the following tasks.

The grantee conducts a research based on the submitted research proposal during the application period. The scope and the aims of the research might change slightly due to unexpected obstacles and difficulties or to reasonable change in the focus or methods because of the recent findings. The grantee needs to consult the reasons and the possible changes and has approved by the head of CIAS.

At the end of the research period the grantee must submit at least one article about his/her research project. Senior researchers need to publish in Q1 (Scimago) or equivalent peer-reviewed academic journals, junior researchers need to publish in Q2 (Scimago) or equivalent peer-reviewed academic journals.

CIAS research fellows will present their research findings and results at the regular international workshop(s) of CIAS. We organize the workshops in each semester.

It is also recommended to establish new and/or maintain existing relationships with scholars of the research topic within and out of Corvinus University of Budapest.

The research fellows do not have obligatory teaching activities at the university, but they are welcome to participate in courses, PhD consultations, public lectures, and any other professional activities.
