Visiting Scholars

 ARCS welcomes Visiting Scholars (advanced undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members) who have secured funding for research in Bulgaria but who lack an academic home. All scholars are welcome to use the Library and the Center can assist with logistical matters.

Visiting scholars should submit a project proposal (up to five double-spaced pages) describing how participation in the ARCS 3-month (Fall or Spring) or 9-month program will serve your academic interests and/or dissertation research. The proposal, together with a CV, should be sent electronically to Dr. Emil Nankov at  

As this is not a Fellowship, we accept such applications on a rolling basis. We will assess the financial obligations scholars on a case-by-case basis.
