Local Faculty Fellows (LFFs) are talented academics from
Eastern Europe and Eurasia who received their graduate education in the West and return to
university positions in their home countries. Most are junior academics committed to
careers in academia and looking to help reform the way the social sciences are taught in
the region. CEP gives them the financial, institutional, and professional support they
require to accomplish this goal.
"Without any exaggeration, my best working experience has been
the years with CEP. This organization gives the opportunity not to dream about change, but
to actually change life today
All the talented and committed people working for CEP
share the same values of freedom, independence, professionalism and responsibility."
Elena Kovaleva, LFF alumna, Donetsk State Technical University
CEP provides assistance to academics by helping them obtain teaching
materials, providing opportunities to learn about teaching methodologies, and creating
academic networks for collaboration and professional development. Local Faculty Fellows
can receive support for up to two years in most CEP countries and up to three years in
Central Asia from CEP.
Please note that CEP can only provide support to academics who have already secured a
university teaching position in their home country
