Central European University is delighted to invite applications for the Gerd Bucerius History Scholarship (Master of Arts). ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius has generously partnered with Central European University to fund joint scholarships offered to high-achieving students who wish to pursue a one-year or two-year Master’s degree at CEU’s Department of History.

Gerd Bucerius History Scholarship (ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius)

The scholarships include:

- a 100% tuition-waiver
- accommodation in CEU’s Vienna dormitories
- a monthly stipend of EUR 470
- a once-off research allowance of EUR 1000
- health insurance

Both the one-year and the two-year MA programs have a substantial research component, including a thesis project that allows students to pursue their own research in close collaboration with leading historians in their fields. CEU will be accepting all incoming students to its new campus in Vienna, Austria. In addition to coursework and research supervision in Vienna, students can also take advantage of academic activities and resources available on CEU’s Budapest campus.

As an international faculty and student body, we strive to think about history comparatively across geographical regions, historical periods, and disciplines. In order to foster a spirit of critical inquiry, students also receive solid training in historical methods and theory. In addition to the regular program of their degree, students can specialize in a range of non-degree subject areas and concentrations:
- Archives and Evidentiary Practices
- Contemporary History
- Early Modern Studies
- Eastern Mediterranean Studies
- History of Science
- Jewish Studies
- Religious Studies
- Political Thought
- Visual Studies

The Gerd Bucerius History Scholarship provides full funding for both the one-year MA in Comparative History and the two-year MA in Comparative History from 1500 to the Present Time. For more information on what these programs offer, see

All students applying for financial aid in the History MA Program will be eligible for this scholarship. If you are interested in the Gerd Bucerius History Scholarship, you should indicate this in the Statement of Purpose that you will be asked to submit as part of your application.
