The Younger Fellow scholarship gives younger scholars - PhD students and postdoctoral fellows in particular - the opportunity to join the vibrant and cross-disciplinary research environment at C-REX.

The program is intended to facilitate short-term research stays, promoting the exchange of knowledge and experience, as well as networking, among colleagues working specifically on right-wing extremism and far right politics. 

We particularly welcome applications from scholars whose work build on C-REX's unique data and/or relates to our five research themes or ongoing projects
