The fellowships will run from September 2017 to June 2018 and they are open to candidates from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.

The fellowships have three main elements:

  • Work on a personal research project 
  • Participation in the Academy’s leadership programme and activities 
  • Opportunity to contribute to the wider work of a Chatham House research team
