    The IWM offers a place for research and scholarly debate across borders and disciplines. Its various fellowship programs are thus a fundamental part of the Institute’s work. Each year approximately fifty Visiting Fellows, Junior Visiting Fellows and Guests – mainly from Eastern and Western Europe as well as from North America – are awarded fellowships to pursue their individual research projects while working in residence at the IWM as members of an international and multidisciplinary academic community. The IWM strives to provide conditions that allow the fellows to make significant progress in their research and to profit from the intellectual stimulation of the Institute’s seminars, lectures and other events. Since its inception in 1982, the IWM has hosted nearly 1000 scholars, journalists and translators.
