Emily Welkins Foundation

Emily Welkins Foundation was established in 2012 in order to promote research in social sciences and humanities (SSH) in Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs).

The Foundation is focused on supporting young scholars in CEECs in their research and early-stage careers. In particular, young and promising researchers who are pursuing "less ordinary" subjects in the field of SSH are supported.


I believe that every accomplished, succesful, or experienced academic has an obligation to foster the talents of begining and aspiring researchers. It is my privilege, and the privilege of Emily Welkins Foundation, to provide further opportunities for young scholars in Central and Eastern Europe, to foster their work and to make it known to the scientific communities in the United Kingdom and United States.
