The Global Challenges Fellowship Program (GCFP) assembles scholars from rising non-Western powers to explore questions in the humanities or social sciences relevant to the most pressing public policy challenges of the 21st century. GCF fosters new forms of scientific collaboration and enhances transnational and interdisciplinary cooperation between regional and international partners. Supported by the Volkswagen Foundation, the fellowship is hosted by the School of Public Policy (SPP) and the Institute for Advanced Study at Central European University (CEU IAS), both in Budapest, as well as the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) in Berlin.

The aim of the Global Challenges Fellowship Program (GCFP) is to invite researchers and practitioners from nine emerging countries (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, and Turkey) to SPP and CEU IAS as well as to GPPi. This serves the ultimate purpose of forging closer ties between Western and non-Western researchers and policy makers, offering fresh perspectives on some of the world’s most pressing public policy challenges. This unique collaborative program seeks to bridge policy theory and practice to generate mutually beneficial and groundbreaking exchanges between the two areas. The goal is to encourage fresh perspectives on some of the most pressing global public policy challenges by forging closer ties between policy practitioners and academics from Europe and outside the “established West.”

The program supports up to two junior and two senior Fellows per year. During their fellowship, they publish journal articles and/or policy papers and participate in a series of small working group-style discussions and seminars. The fellows spend a total of approximately 7-8 months as Global Challenges Fellows (GCF) doing analytical and empirical work in Budapest, and engaging with policy practitioners at GPPi in Berlin. While the exact timetable depends on the specifications of each research project, the majority of time (about 75%) is spent in Budapest.
