About the Fellowships

The EPSA launched the fellowship scheme in 2015, as part of our ongoing aim to promote the European tradition in philosophy of science. The aim of the EPSA in offering these awards is to provide junior philosophers working in Central and Eastern Europe with the opportunity to visit a leading research institution in Western Europe. For the purposes of these awards, "junior" is understood as researchers who are (a) in the last six months of their PhD or (b) have been awarded their PhD no more than five years prior to the application deadline.

An EPSA Fellowship is intended to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and living expenses for up to one month. Fellows are expected to be resident at their host institution and take part in its research activities. The Fellowship initiative is made possible by the continued and generous support of the Host Institutions, who cover the full costs of the awards.

The EPSA Fellowship Committee is responsible for all aspects of the fellowship scheme: 

    • Raffaella Campaner
    • Maria Kronfeldner
    • Javier Suárez Diaz

For all enquiries please contact a member of the Fellowship Committee at

Update on COVID: If any of our EPSA Fellows are experiencing problems with your planned visit on account of the ongoing coronavirus situation, please get in touch with us and we will do everything we can to help.

Contact Martin Zach on the fellowship committee. 


The fellowship scheme operates on a biennial basis. Applications for the 2019-20 academic year EPSA Fellowships are now closed. Details of the 2021-22 Fellowship application process will be posted here in Spring 2021.
